Email Protocol


Recommended Posts

I need some advice on good 'acceptance email' protocol. The official acceptance email was sent by the PhD coordinator X, but the letter was signed by the Associate Dean (AD), with a (specifically noted) copy to my supervisor, and two other senior professors in the department. Does "Dear Ms X and Professors AD, P1, P2 and P3" sound clumsy? What would you guys do? Please help!

I think you're overthinking it. They've accepted you, they won't be upset by how you address your response.

I would either just avoid the problem and plainly say "Hello," or just put in the name of the person who sent you the email directly.

You're definitely overthinking this. There's no reason whatsoever to reply to the Associate Dean or even the other senior professors. You don't need to thank them for your admission. If you have questions, send those to the PhD coordinator or your supervisor.
