Interviews: thank you notes Watch
If it is not customary, would it be frowned upon?
Is it relatively common or not?
And regarding your point on it giving an "unfair advantage", shouldn't it give an 'advantage' (minimal, if any)? Aren't politeness and initiative traits that Oxford and its tutors look for in students? The same thing happens for jobs and internships, so why is Oxford different?
I never waned to do it to try get an advantage of any sorts, and personally don’t think it should give an advantage (my comment above was purely just to how/why people viewed Ox interviews as being different to other types).
Wouldn’t think about sending gifts, that would definitely send the wrong signals! Would be nice to thank all the student helpers and admissions team too, although I reckon doing so would only be possible via the admissions officer.
