I'm taking a semester off from college this year for anxiety reasons. I'm working a part-time, unpaid internship this summer, and taking an online class. I'm looking for a paid job as well.

I just had an interview for an position with a company I'd very much like to work for.

I had an interview 2 weeks ago. The interview was more of a conversation of us getting to know each other. I sent an email thank you that night. They told me that they had a couple of other people they were meeting with after me, and then they'd then be making the decision (this week). Do I send a snail mail thank you now? I don't want to seem too eager.
