I applied to PhD Electrical Engineering. I got the offer letter a few weeks ago. Early February maybe? I haven't accepted yet because I'm waiting to hear if I will be getting the Purdue Doctoral Fellowship. Has anyone received that? I have a question for everyone:
Have you heard of any way to increase your odds of getting it? I'm wondering if I should commit myself to Purdue now (since I will be eventually) so that I may be more likely to get it since they already know I'm going there. Then again, I'm wondering if that may shoot myself in the foot. Maybe they will see that I've already accepted and there's no incentive to give it to me to get me to go there? Any suggestions?
Yes, I am probably over thinking this. That's what graduate students do though right ?
