Almost certainly not worth it. Just do better next time.

Probably not since most likely they�ve made up their mind about you during the meeting or right after you walked out the door.

like

Definitely not. Use the Thank you note as an opportunity to express your gratitude for the time they shared with you. They could’ve been anywhere and they chose to be with you, that is a victory. A meeting is neither good or bad if you are simply interested in building a relationship and seeing if chemistry exist. Don’t get in your head and if you really believe you could’ve done better then use it as a personal development opportunity

No.

No. They probably didn't notice.

Definitely do not bring it up because if they didn't notice it you will now be pointing it out to them!
