Is it appropriate to send a thank you note to the program director after interviewing for a CRNA program? I usually send one after a job interview but I wasn't sure of the etiquette in this situation. I don't want to seem like too much of a "suck-up" but I do think it would be a nice gesture. Opinions please.
I don't think it would be inappropriate at all! After all, it's very similar to interviewing for a job....and what's the worst that could happen??? They'd get it, think how professional/thoughtful you were and then you'd be fresh in his/her mind.
I sent a letter to the school that I interviewed at and I now start in Jan. so if I were you I would start typing.
Actually, I sent a letter to the clinical director, program director, financial aid person, and the admissions person thanking all of them for spending time with me on a visit a few months before the interview date. It is my feeling that you must give them a reason to allow you to stand out. If your experience, grades, GRE...paralleles another applicants and they must choose b/w the 2 of you, it may make a difference by showing that this is important to you. I don't know of anyone who has been declined due to excessive sucking up. By the way, I start in January! Type away!!!

It's never wrong to say thank you! It's impressive which is important! Good luck!
Absolutely, I did it and the program director even mentioned it by thanking me the next time we talked. I got in.
Just a CRNA
After sitting in on numerous interviews, I am aware of only one potential student who took the time to send a follow up note. It was very favorably received.
