Inquiring about an assistantship in The Bank Posted May 9, 2017 · Edited May 9, 2017 by Amanda87 spelling I applied for a graduate or research assistantship for the program I'll be attending for my master's degree. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about inquiring about the status of my application. We were told awards would generally be given out by the end of May. Is it too early to check in and ask when I might find out? I would like to ask if it seems appropriate, but I also don't want to ask and seem too eager and therefore make me a less appealing candidate. I think a I have a pretty good shot because the school is small and they have a pretty good amount of graduate/research assistantships. Thanks for any feedback.
