  1. It does feel like that and it's kind of disconcerting after spending so many months hoping to impress these people. I guess it's a bit of imposter syndrome already creeping in which I'm trying to keep a handle on. You're right about turning down an offer feeling so daunting but the perspective that at the end of the day, it's not that important is exactly it! Thanks for your words of reassurance Thank you for this advice! I was planning to ask to speak to current graduate students but asking to speak to other internationals is definitely a good idea.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm a long time lurker on these forums and will probably post more as I come to making decisions (I have three offers that I'm deciding between). I'm an international student and can't go on any of the visit days due to visa issues, so I've been emailing and will skype with my POIs to help me decide. One of my three offers is probably the one I will accept but I haven't fully committed to it yet because it is such a big decision. I'm not sure how open to be about this with the POIs -- one of them at another choice has suggested he could advocate for housing for me to help me make my decision, so I'm torn between being transparent and telling him that I'm leaning towards another option but would like still like to talk over the phone, or not and letting him do so. I don't want him to feel like I'm wasting his time. Generally, I'm just finding this quite difficult to navigate in a way that doesn't drag it out but also allows me to consider everything!
