I did it as a 1L, but this year I am only mailing a few. My impression is that it is good manners, but that the lawyers could really care less.

Our career services office recommends short, typed thank you notes on resume paper.

I'm a 2L. I type mine on resume paper.

I'm sort of doing the inverse:

I wait until I get my rejection letters and then I send out pleasantly worded and fancily decorated "Fuck You" cards to everyone who had the audacity to actually turn me down...ME.

Fucking plebeians...

I felt this way as a law student and feel the same as a practicing attorney: if anyone thinks whether they send an effing thank you card makes a darn bit of difference in whether one gets hired, I have some swamp land in Florida you might be interested.

I agree with Balazo: no one gives a damn, so far as I can tell.

Like all paper in a law firm, everything has to go in a file at some point, so Hallmark Hello Kitty cards aren't a good idea. Better to stick with 8 1/2 x 11 paper, which looks silly if you handwrite, so type it out with the same resume header you use.

Yep - our OPD (Office of Professional Development - are you down with OPD?) recommends a short typed thank you note on resume paper....I do that, wipe my ass with and then send it.....it always does the trick.

if the interview goes well, i send a handwritten note (calligraphy, of course) sprayed with cologne (usually drakkar noir, since i still have 7 bottles leftover from bar mitzvah gifts). this letter, of course, is hand-delivered by a string quartet. usually, most cities have them, but in small towns like amarillo, i usually just call the town fiddler and make do.

if the interview goes badly, i usually just send fake anthrax (talcum powder) or a used maxipad i find in the parking lot's dumpster with a message saying "i anticipate you will call me and offer the the summer clerkship, or a callback. unfortunately, i do not think you got to know the real me, as we only had 18.3 minutes to meet because the next interviewee was eager to knock on the door a lot. since you did not keep him/her at bay and reprimand him/her for interrupting our time together, i respectfully decline your offers to lure me.

sometimes the anonymous dirty condom works, too.

I wouldn't bother until after your callbacks. One firm got us next day rejection letters last year, and many were within 2-3 days. If they're taking longer than that, I still doubt your letter will have any influence. As you say, it can only be a downside.

an e-greeting would be a nice touch... animated & sound... you know, the works! well, handwritten gets noticed... don't you have any stationary left from the wedding? when my sister got married it took them a year to get their thankyou's out. i have horrible penmanship, so it takes forever to write one t/y using my fake/legible h/w. i throw in foil confetti.. because everyone knows confetti makes them so fun to open!

No

DO NOT SENT THEM. We will have completed our evaluations before we get the thank you note. The only thing that will cause us to change our minds or amend our evaluation is if you do something shockingly strange (e.g., smiley face over the "i"s) or misspell something or use bad grammar. There is no way to help your candidacy with a thank you note.

Our Career Development Office strongly recommends against sending thank you notes on the grounds that it can't really help you and can hurt you if the note isn't absolutely perfect.

Barefoot

I say send them -- even if it does nothing for you now, it's good to be polite and forge a stronger connection. I'd either type one on nice paper or order some cheap stationery with your name on the front.
Just be sure to triple-check it for errors!

Centinel

The other atty postings are correct -- thank you notes aren't going to make a lick of (positive) difference in whether you get an offer or not. That said, they can help attys remember you. For example, I received a short, hand-written note from one particular interviewee that was fantastically done. He was sincere and referenced something we'd talked about (OK, it happened to be Office Space). I will definitely remember him should he come here, and I will already have a good impression of him. Not bad for $.37.

No

I sent emails. They didn't hurt me.
