Hi everyone! I recently had an interview with an alum from UPenn and I want to send them a thank you letter. Any advice on what I should include in the letter or any specific format I should follow?

Hi there! Sending a thank you letter after an alumni interview is a great idea. Here are some tips on what to include in your letter:

1. Start by addressing the alum personally, using their name and an appropriate salutation. For example, "Dear Mr./Ms. [Last Name],"

2. Express gratitude for their time and the opportunity to discuss your interest in UPenn. Keep it genuine and authentic: "Thank you for taking the time to speak with me about my experiences and aspirations as they relate to the University of Pennsylvania."

3. Mention some highlights or memorable moments from the interview. Make sure to be specific so that the alum knows you truly appreciated the conversation: "I genuinely enjoyed our discussion about [specific topic], and your perspective on [another topic] provided valuable insight into the UPenn community."

4. Briefly reiterate your enthusiasm for UPenn. This will show the interviewer that their input has had a positive impact on your interest in the university: "Our conversation has only reinforced my excitement for the opportunities and experiences that UPenn offers students."

5. Close the letter with another thank you. You can also mention that you look forward to potentially joining the UPenn community: "Once again, thank you for your time and insights, and I hope to have the opportunity to contribute my talents to the UPenn campus in the future."

6. End the letter with a polite closing, such as "Sincerely," "Best regards," or "Warm regards," followed by your full name.

Remember to keep your letter concise and focused. Make sure to proofread the letter for any spelling or grammatical errors, and send it within a day or two of your interview - ideally within 24 hours, so their memory of you is as fresh as possible. Good luck!
