artist_lily Posted April 17, 2010 Share Posted April 17, 2010 Hi all, As the application process winds downs, how are all of you going about thanking your advisors and mentors for their help during this difficult year? I handwrote thank-you notes to all of mine after they had submitted their LORs and have just recently followed up with them via e-mail regarding where I'll be going, but I'm unsure as to whether a second "hard-copy" thank-you note is in order (likely) or whether giving them a small token of appreciation (chocolates or something similar) would be appropriate. (I've read on other forums that gifts for LOR writers are generally discouraged; as it's now after the fact, however -- I'll likely never be needing their endorsement again -- and as I have fairly close relationships with 2/3 of mine, I'm wondering if this situation is any different.) Any suggestions or tips? What are others doing? I feel so hesitant to let the whole thing go by without any further acknowledgement of all they've done for me, but at the same time, don't want to appear too over-the-top! Thoughts would be very much appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
