American University of St. Vincent is dedicated to ensuring the success of their students, even in the application process. We’ve covered the MCAT, Personal Statement, and Interviews; now we wish to see you succeed. With your in-person interview completed, there are a few follow-up steps you can take to ensure further success.
The first step we recommend is sending personal thank you cards to your interviewers. This displays your appreciation for time of the administration and a commitment to your decisions. This personal touch has now become expected after interviews, and it would be a faux-pas if a follow up greeting was not posted. Both handwritten letters/cards and emails are acceptable, as long as you are sending them. There are post-interview templates online here if you would like to see some examples:http://www.businessinsider.com/the-perfect-interview-follow-up-letter-2015-7
After you have sent your letter, continue in the attitude of making a good impression. It is advised to keep your social media clean and presentable: public platforms will be open to your future school and workplace. Check and filter emails regularly so important notifications will not slip through. Along these lines, filing paperwork for schools in safe and organized spaces will help you keep important documents on hand and available if necessary. There are many apps for your phone which can help you organize your life and time to make things more manageable.

Throughout this process, your attitude is the key player. Whether it is during the interview, or post-interview, your attitude colours everything. Staying positive about the situation aleviates stress and can help you think clearly. How to stay positive? This blog may help: http://www.positivityblog.com/index.php/2014/04/09/how-to-stay-positive/
