I couldn't find any posts on this in the knowledge vault or rhyme's interview guide thread, so I'm wondering what the consensus is on thank you notes for interviews (interviews with adcoms in particular).

I usually just email a thank you...never sent an actual note.

What if they didn't give you their email address, or any contact info (including last name) for that matter?

I can figure out how to send a letter by mail (the beauties of the internet), email would be a little creepier.

I email a thank you note within 24 hours and mail a hand written thank you note within 3-5 days. If you don't have their contact information, ask for a business card at the end of an interview.

You don't think that's overkill?

I'd just send an e-mail.

You know, hand written thank-you's are pretty cool, and rare. Email is fine (and decorum), but hand written notes are really kind of nice. Not sure how much it matters, but it is nice.

Nope. The quick thank you email keeps you fresh in their mind while showing your appreciation for their time. The hand-written note will help you stand and allow them to remember you as I'm sure they get few of these. If it is overkill, at least it's polite overkill. :)
