  Please when is the right time to send letters of intent to the programs you interviewed with?

  When you interview from a program send a thank you letter as soon as you can.

Why?

Because they immediately start ranking you. Some programs begin ranking you the same day of the interview. Others rank the next day. Others rank the day after. The point is, you want them to remember they had a great time with you during that interview.

Bottom line: After they rank you, they will forget you. Get the thank you letter in their hands hopefully BEFORE they rank you and use it to remind them that you are a great candidate.

  Thank you @leafinthewind.
However, can I send a second letter before ranking ends?
