    My daughter had her nrotc officer interview today. Back in the day when I went on college interviews, I sent a handwritten thank you. Which medium is preferred for a thank you in 2017, handwritten and mailed, typed and mailed, or email?

    Thanks

    My DS sent each note via e-mail.

    Handwritten notes are different from today's norm, and thus may be remembered more. Nonetheless, an email is also just fine. The older the interviewer, the more likely a hand written note will be appreciated.

    My suggestion is to let your DD be herself. If she accepts your suggestion to send a written note, then great. But if she wants to stick with email, don't make a big deal about it.

    I commission this year from AFROTC and have been on scholarship since High School. My interviewer specifically remembered my handwritten thank you. Do it.

    If a student sends a thank you via email afterwards, it's certainty noted. The majority do not. A handwritten note is definitely a step above, but by no means required.
