JL24 Posted October 1, 2013 Share Posted October 1, 2013 Hi, I'm curious about the best practice for reaching out to professors I'd like to work with. I know that, for programs in the sciences, this is necessary to check availability and lab space, but I've heard otherwise for communication programs. Some programs encourage contacting faculty, some discourage it, and others say nothing. Is this something commonly done, or even a good idea? Furthermore, in the one email I started drafting, I have found it incredibly hard to describe my master's thesis and intended doctoral research concisely. Can someone provide tips about length and initial disclosure in such an email? I don't want to bombard the receiver with too much. Thanks, JL Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
