Following up with POIs while waiting


Recommended Posts

Is there some way to follow up with my POIs while I wait for the results to come in?

I was thinking I could write:

"Dear Prof. X,

I just wanted to drop you a note because I mentioned you in particular in my application as someone I'm interested in working with. Thanks again for the great visit back in October.

Bad idea. You really don't want to interfere with the admissions process in any way while they're actually reviewing applications. The prof will know you mentioned him/her on your application when he/she reads it, so just sit tight and wait for a decision.

I had a similar query.. Since some of the deadlines were early, I hadn't finished writing up my research and couldn't submit my research write-up as part of the writing sample.. I now have a decent write-up and would like to update my application.. Any idea if this is possible? If so, how should I go about doing it?? Mail the admissions contact? Or the professor I mentioned in my SOP and had prior email contact with?
