sputnik Posted December 22, 2010 Share Posted December 22, 2010 So I felt awkward about emailing profs at programs to which I'd be applying, and decided to go a different route. Over the last year, as I've picked out my schools, I started following professors and grad students from those programs (that I could find) on Twitter. I've been @-replying and re-tweeting when applicable. And at my top choice school, I was even able to help out a prof who was looking for a file. I had it so I sent it over. I am hoping that will help me stick out a bit more than the typical "Hi I want to study with you" emails. I just wanted to share that on here. I found I was able to see the personalities of some of the profs, and get a feel for the other students. It became a very valuable tool for me in the application process. I will let you know how it works out! (Sorry for the double post) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
