    Welcome to the forum.

    It could have several meanings. In what context did you find the sentence?

    Re: "Thanks for checking in."

    Who wrote it? Was it addressed to you? Could you have written something like 'How did your interview go?' and got this response?

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: "Thanks for checking in."

    It's a common American expression. "Thanks for checking in" can mean:

    - Thanks for getting in touch.
    - Thanks for asking my opinion.
    - Thanks for staying in contact.
    - Thanks for asking how I feel.
    - Thanks for asking about my health.
    - Thanks for calling/texting/emailing.

    In this case, it means: Thanks for contacting me directly.

    To check in is usually to make a brief, informal one-to-one contact. For instance:

    - Don't worry, I'm fine with all the decisions the company made while I was away. It's good of you to ask. Thanks for checking in!

    - I wasn't sure you really wanted to go to Rome, so I thought I'd check in about it.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
