Should I follow up with thank you email to those who interviewed me?


Hey there,

Looking for any advice on this. Prior to my interview for NYU's Grad Film MFA, I was given the names of the faculty who would be conducting my interview - however I was not given their contact info. Their school emails are publicly available on the school's site/their page however. Do you think it is appropriate to email them a thank you for their time etc? Part of me feels like it is a bit of an invasion on privacy since their contact info wasn't directly given, but I remind myself for a job interview I normally send a follow up email. Any opinions would be great! Thank you!

Yes, it is good form to email a thank you after a graduate school interview. It probably won't hurt you if you don't, but if you include something unique about you or your conversation, it might help you stick out in their mind after interviewing a bunch of candidates.

That's what my parents said at least :)
