emailing POI


Recommended Posts

I already turned in my application for graduate school (due Dec. 15), but I JUST found out that I will be an author on a paper that will be submitted to a journal. The research is based on the research done by a potential faculty member that I am applying for, and I haven't mentioned this paper at all in my application because I was not aware. Should I email my potential POI and inform him of this? I never contacted the POI before.

Don't contact your POI, instead see if you can contact either the graduate division or the department secretary and have them make the change to your application on their end. Sometimes they are able/willing to make changes for you once your application has been submitted. You POI won't have access to any of that, so letting them know may impress them, but if they don't pass it along and/or aren't on the adcom, it won't do you much good. And your still ahead of the deadline, so hopefully they will help you out.
