What sort of thank you's or follow-ups are expected after a campus interview or even a phone interview? E-mails, old-fashioned letters? And to whom? The chair, or everyone involved? Thanks for the help and good luck to everyone!

After a campus interview, I recommend sending a thank you e-mail to everyone you met with in the department. (I don't think it's necessary to send thank-you e-mails to deans and provosts.)
After a phone interview, it's probably a good idea to send a thank you e-mail to the person with whom you spoke.
I don't think old-fashioned letters are necessary, although I've heard of people sending them. That feels like going a little too over the top to me.
E-mails to everyone after a phone interview? Seems a little forced to me. After a campus interview…I could see that.
There isn't much to be lost by not sending the emails, is there? That's the beauty of an email. I think for a phone interview, the main contact person and - if it was a small group - perhaps everyone involved. For a campus interview, ditto Waiting.
Should a thank you follow-up to a campus interview be directed to ALL people you met with in one email or separate emails to each individual? About how long should you wait after the campus interview?
Glad you put "sarcasm." Haha! I was worried that I messed up since there was no wifi at the airport ;)
