  1. I emailed to ask when school decisions would be released and I was told that I was on the top of the wait-list for my top choice school and more likely than not they would have a space for me eventually. They also said to let them know if I had any questions and that they could give me advice about other schools I've been accepted to. How should I respond to the email? So far I haven't gotten any acceptances and I'm still waiting to hear back from a few schools. I wasn't sure if this was the right place to ask about the funding provided.. what does everyone think? I have something like this right now: "Hello Professor xyz, Thank you for considering me as a candidate for the xyz program. If accepted off the wait-list, I would happily attend the university of xyz. I look forward to hearing back from you with an update on my admission. I was hoping you could tell me a little bit more about the financial support at the university xyz. Is there any guarantee for an assistantship/fellowship for the first year? What is the average funding provided? I will be sure to reach out once I hear back from other programs as well. Thank you for the offer." I wasn't sure if I should include anything else since it was sort of informal.. any advice would be very appreciated. I want to send the email asap.
  2. Hi, I don't know if it is the best place to ask about this topic but I hope it would be fine! After the end of my master degree, my tutor (and program director) told me informally that they were very happy with my dissertation and that the board wants to award me the Prize for Best Dissertation of the year and that an "official letter will follow soon." This was October, and I asked him about the Prize two more times by email (I changed address so I communicated the new address and the last time I asked if I could mention the Prize in my CV even if it hasn't awarded officially, yet) and he always replied that he had to arrange things. Is that normal? Are prizes usually awarded a year after, or in a specific period of the year? I don't know what "arrange things" means.... About the CV he told me that I should mention it so it means that he hasn't changed idea... I have also some doubts about the word "Prize" as I am not a native speaker... does it mean that they will award me money or ? Thank you
