EngineerGrad Posted January 20, 2014 Share Posted January 20, 2014 Good evening guys, So last year (around october), while I was reaching out to professors conducting research in the area I am interested, I found this one professor who works at a top tier school doing research in what I would greatly enjoy being involved with. I sent her an email and -- surprisingly -- got a very fast and friendly response. We exchanged a couple emails back then, she sent me some papers for me to see if I really am interested in her research and asked me to follow up with her. Well, this school is very competitive, so I although I had a good connection with her, I was leaning towards not applying, just because I knew it would be statistically close to impossible for me to get in. Well, I kept applying to my other schools, but one day I noticed that one of her current PhD students had checked out my linkedin profile. I was like "woah, they might be talking about me, so the professor still remembers who I am," so based on that (don't judge me), I decided to go ahead and apply to this program. Shortly after my application submission, I emailed her saying "hi, I've just applied, and I am following up as you asked me to." And she replied in the same day: great, thanks for following up, I will schedule a skype interview in January once I've had the chance to review your application. My question: Ok, it's January 20th and I haven't heard from her, should I email her? If so, what should I say? How would I approach her? Thanks for your help! I appreciate it.
