  1. Hey all, Some people have told me that, before applying to PhD programs, it's a good idea to contact the faculty members with which you wish to work. I was just wondering what types of things people generally say or ask while reaching out to potential faculty. Thanks in advance!
  2. I have heard back from many programs and am now considering my options of where I'll attend. There is, however, one program from which I have not yet heard anything. On the results board on this site, I have seen acceptances and rejections already posted from this program and the application guidelines indicate that I was to expect to hear back by late February. So my question is: Would it be uncouth of me at all to reach out and ask about my application status? Since they've already sent out at least some acceptances and rejections, I am worried that there is some mistake or something (ex. th
  3. After a Skype interview with a professor, she said she would get back to me by the end of the week (I am assuming about a formal in person interview) but she did not get back to me then or the week after. Is it okay if I email her and ask for an update. I know it is a no but I just wish she would formally say she is not inviting me.
  4. So I realize this could go into the more general forums, but I wanted the perspective from some English ppl (I'm rhet/comp, but I'd love input regardless). Is anyone still contacting faculty at their programs of interest or has that ship sailed with application deadlines approaching? I've networked a little at conferences (and those convos went great), however I'm finding that emails and phone calls are so awkward. I recently had a phone conversation with a faculty member I'd be interested in working with and it was almost painful. Maybe because I'm an introvert? Maybe because I'd never met th
  5. Hello, I am currently on a waitlist for a Clinical Psychology program and I am wondering if I should email my POI just restating that I am still interested in the program and to also ask if there is anything I can do to help my application. Thanks
  6. It seems like everyone has received all of their responses, whether positive or negative, and have moved on to the final school decisions/planning for a gap year. I was feeling okay when no one had posted any results on here about the MA programs that I'm still waiting to hear from (Syracuse, Ole Miss, Purdue), but now that someone has posted about getting accepted into SU's MA program, my heart is broken. I want to contact them, just to get an answer, but I don't know if that's a good idea. Can it hurt anything this late in the game? If I contact them, what should I say?
  7. What's the "right" way to handle getting an update on the status of your application? Normally, I'd just wait it out, but one of my fully funded offers needs a decision by next week. Unfortunately, my top choices haven't given me much information yet...
  8. Hi everyone. I am currently in the final semester of my masters in education and have come to the conclusion that I would like to continue my education and pursue a PhD. I am currently completing a degree in Social Studies education, and would like to also pursue my PhD in that same field of study. My current program has led me to read a lot of academic work, and one such author resonated with me each time I read his work. After a quick search of his name in a bout of curiosity, it turns out he is the program director/doctoral advisor for a Social Studies Education program. The schools website
  9. I'm applying for physics PhD programs and haven't heard a peep from any of the schools I applied to. One, I know for sure emails all decisions in March, but that's it. I'm really worried that I haven't heard from any of them. I see other people already getting in. I have this horrible feeling that February will pass and I won't hear anything, which will surely mean I've been rejected, and then I'll have to wait some MORE for the inevitable rejection email. At this point, should I be assuming that's just what's going to happen? Should I contact the departments about my application status?
  10. I'm picking my clinic placements and I'm trying to balance what I really want to do (ENT/Swallow) with what will give me the contact hours I need. Are there any KU students that can tell me what are the average contact hours for any of the following: Lawrence Campus FACS LEAP SAT KUMC ENT Clinic Garden Terrace Swallow Parkinson Children's Place I know I can really clean up hours-wise if I do LAP/RAP but I really, really don't want to do that!! ARGH!
  11. Hello, I’m hoping you all can offer me some advice. I was accepted into 4 MA in English programs, 2 of which I am deciding between. I am currently drafting an e-mail to both Graduate Program Directors to inquire about funding opportunities, nail down the actual tuition prices, and gather additional information on the programs. I do have one concern though – I have an international trip planned and paid for in September. This all has been planned for over a year and a half, before I was accepted or even applying for these programs. I will be out of the country for a week and half, and
