  1. Hi all, I am trying to analyze my fit with a prospective PI. I really like him and I am totally compelled by the research he is doing, but I have heard he can be a little intense and I want to watch out for red flags. I flew out to interview last weekend and when I got to the first recruitment event I found out he had invited three people to interview for a position in his lab. When discussing it with his current students later on, it appears he only has one position to fill. Does this strike anybody as odd? He had each of us give a short presentation at his lab meeting and, upon reviewin
  2. Hi all! First, do you think it is a good idea to contact people who I would like to work with for my PhD before completing grad school applications? If yes, then do you have any an recommendations on what to say in the email, such as discussing my research interests and see how it connects to their research? Thanks for the help in advance! Good luck to everyone applying this year!
  3. Hi, My PI who told me that she will get back to me about funding " withing 2 weeks " has been silent for more than 3 weeks now. I emailed her twice and no reply. Is it okay to call a week after my last email ? I do not want to appear impatient but I have a notice period at my current work place and my manager told me to inform him by 30th May. I did write this in my email but she still did not respond. Is it okay to call her ?

    Rotation dilemma

    So I emailed a professor I was interested in doing a rotation with, and his response was yes. However, he also mentioned that he will be retiring soon and thus will not be able to take me in as a student in his lab. I'm pretty bummed because I was hoping that he'd become my PI someday, but I guess I should have asked before accepting to this school :/ Anyways, I wanted to rotate in labs that I will potentially be able to stay in, since there are only three rotations in my program. But then again I feel rude replying to him, "ok never mind, I'll look for somewhere else to rotate in".
  5. Currently, I am researching Quantitative Psychology PhD programs and trying to select potential PI's for applications in the Fall. I was wondering if anyone had advice for picking PI's beyond research interests. For example, I'm interested in limitations to longitudinal models and dealing with missing data in these models. There are a surprising number of people working with longitudinal data. I would like to push my criteria for selecting a PI beyond just research interest. Here are some things I've started looking at... 1) How often the PI publishes, 2) The amount of grant money the PI
  6. I called one of the schools that I applied to, and spoke with the administrative assistant regarding my graduate school application to their department. The person was helpful, and let me know that some interview invitations went out, but not all. I was advised to contact the PI I applied to work with and ask them directly about the status of the application. I don't mind doing so, as I have had friendly correspondence with this PI already, but I wanted to know if this was a good idea. I can honestly see the outcome going either way. It could either be seen as me showing a continued inte
  7. Hi everyone, I'm applying for a PhD (Biomedical Eng.) and was offered funding for 3 years by a professor I want to work with. He wrote me a rec letter wherein he states that he wants me to work in his lab with him providing full funding. Quick explanation; I've worked with him on a project for which he has been granted funding. Should I expect to be admitted (more than usual), considering this? I heard that funding is the key especially for international students. For the record, I am an international student, my application is fairly decent with a M.S. in Bioengineering and ano
  8. Hi everyone! So I was in this general biomedical sciences program last fall. I did a few lab rotations but then took medical leave for some health issues. Now I want to return to the program and am looking for labs again. The only lab I could say I kind of liked has a few issues. The research topic was interesting, although not my top interest. However, I am willing to accept that due to lack of labs that are a better fit. The real problem though, is that the lab is horribly disorganized. The PI is around 9-5, and she MUST leave at 5 pm to pick up her small kids from school. She
