coffeeintotheorems Posted April 21, 2010 Share Posted April 21, 2010 According to the Princeton Review's advice for applying to graduate school, "Almost every grad school applicant will receive at least one rejection. While that won't be fun, it's not quite the final act. Call your contact professors in that department and politely express your regret at not being admitted. Ask them if they can point out where your application was weak or give you some suggestions on how you might strengthen your candidacy in the future. This will help if you choose to re-apply the following year." (source: http://www.princeton...-timeline.aspx) Of course I would like to do this; however, the request does not seem standard. Has anyone done this effectively? Are professors even at liberty to give such comments? AbbyBrown 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
