onefellsloop Posted May 31, 2013 Share Posted May 31, 2013 I've recently been accepted to my preferred school, and while I couldn't be more excited about the good news, I am now faced with something else to worry about! I'm neurotic by nature, so I can't help the needless worrying, but as I have also been out of school for several years now, I feel at least a little bit justified in it So, since I will be traveling to the city where the university is located anyway on an unrelated trip, I contacted my advisor and asked if he'd like to meet. Though I'm happy/grateful that he agreed, I am now faced with a few questions regarding said meeting and would appreciate any advice or feedback from the community here. For instance, how formally should I dress for this meeting? I've already been accepted and this is not a formal visit organized by the university for graduate students in general. Rather, I will be meeting my advisor and the plan is for him to show me some of the more relevant-to-my-program parts of the campus before sitting down to chat at a café. Would nice, dark denim, a blouse, blazer, and ballet flats be way too informal? Should I maybe wear trousers and a blouse or sweater instead? Or maybe a dress and cardigan/blazer? Now, with regards to substance, are there any specific questions that I should probably bring up during our chat? For instance, how grad students generally do/feel in the program? Questions about potential funding? Would it be considered vulgar to talk about money/funding/assistantships during this meeting? I'd love to hear any feedback you all can offer!
