Hello everyone, I am a master's student who is attempting to build an app that serves as sort of a Match.com for PhD applicants and Research professors. The idea is to get students and professors better acquainted BEFORE applying, using the web for students who do not have the resources to meet in person, and to avoid phone call/email conversations that can be impersonal and makes building chemistry difficult. The questions I'd like answered before I move forward are: Would an app like this have helped make your search more efficient? Would you find this helpful? What sorts of fields would you find most useful for the app to deliver? i.e. current research, personal information, etc. What recommendations would you make for this app that would maximize the utility to both yourself as a prospective student and to PhD's that you've interacted with? Any input would be greatly appreciated! I'm not just looking for input from those that have been accepted, but also from those that have been denied (like myself), because I want to create a method that will maximize the potential of those applying of getting in! So please help out me and all those struggling to get accepted.
