    Default this is vs it is

    Hi,

    Question:
    Which sentence is correct?

    Sentence1:
    It is 8 days after the interview, so I think it is a suitable time to restate my interest to work for your company and follow up the application.
    Sentence2:
    This is 8 days after the interview, so I think it is a suitable time to restate my interest to work for your company and follow up the application.
    Sentence3:
    It is 8 days after the interview, so I think this is a suitable time to restate my interest to work for your company and follow up the application.
    Sentence4:
    This is 8 days after the interview, so I think this is a suitable time to restate my interest to work for your company and follow up the application.

    Thanks

    How about:

    It has been eight days since my interview. I would like to reiterate my interest in working for your company and answer any questions you may have about my application.

    That's a better way of saying it, but to answer the question, 3 (though it would be better with 'since' rather than 'after').

    If those are the options, I'd choose "It; this"
