Did anyone else get a phone call from Washington University in St. Louis before they finished submitting the application? I did. I've had schools in the past call me after I'd been accepted, but never before I'd even submitted the application. My advisor thinks it's a good sign, but poking around this forum someone said they get a very "sales" vibe to WUSTL admissions, and I could see how that could be the case.
I contacted potential supervisors and have finally received a response from one! yay! He messaged to talk tomorrow morning, so I don't have a lot of time to prepare. What should be the expectations from the phone call? How in detail with it be on research topics? How long should I expect it? These were the things I was expecting to prepare for: Be familiar with one paper that relates to your research that they wrote Have a pitch prepared to begin Have a few questions prepared for the supervisor Anything else I should be aware of?
