Hi everyone, So tomorrow I am Skyping with my POI at a program I've been accepted to. I've had consistent contact with her throughout the application process, since I've been admitted, etc. She wanted to give me the opportunity to ask more questions about the program and discuss funding during this conversation. I have not yet accepted the offer as I am still waiting on several responses and considering my options, but right now this program is at the top of my list. What types of questions should I ask that could help me make a decision? I am certainly interested in learning more about my funding options, TAships, opportunities to attend conferences, etc. Would it be appropriate to ask her things like where grad students typically live, or other more logistical information, or would that be something I should ask other grad students? Also, as I have not yet accepted the offer, how can I politely say that I'm still considering my options, but there's a good possibility I'll be attending this school? I will not be able to attend the admitted students weekend for this program, so I want to be sure I make the most of this conversation and get as many questions answered as I can. Let me know what you think!
