niocwacs Posted June 8, 2009 Share Posted June 8, 2009 I've been desperately trying to find anybody who's been admitted to the same program of the same uni but never succeeded. The other school that had offered me admission before I accepted the offer from the school mentioned above took an interesting step to help me 'make myself at home'. It was like in early April when they told me about other students that were admitted to the same program as me. It was nice to find out who those people were and what their scientific fields were and what activities they were engaged, too, even though the descriptions were rather short. It just occurred to me that I might ask somebody, like the graduate program coordinator or a person who holds a similar position, for some information about my future fellow students. I might even go as far as to asking for their emails... Do you think it would be `normal` thing to do? I mean, don't you think it would make them think of me as of an 'intruder'? I'm a foreigner, I'm not used to the customs in the academia in the US and I don't mean to intrude. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
