I am so sick of people not responding to emails! I finally get an email from a professor who does the exact research I want to do after months of no response. Oh, he'd be happy to chat with me! I email him back right away, and two weeks later, no response. April 15th is coming up fast, man! I ask a simple question at another university - will the second round of funding offers be made after April 15th? Seems like a simple question to answer, but no response after a week. And then there's the graduate coordinator who does eventually respond, but doesn't bother to answer any of the questions in my email. Maybe that's the famous MN indirectness? I have no idea.
