Too Late to Contact the Department?


Recommended Posts

I applied to German PhD programs in the United States. Clearly, getting into one of these programs with great funding would be ideal. 


However, if that doesn't occur, I am considering applying to the Master's program at a school in Canada. They do not receive students with a BA directly into the PhD. I want to apply so that I simply have more options. I was misinformed last year that the school in question did not have a German program - after I looked into the matter myself last week, I see that they do and that it's doing some interesting work. It's my fault that I didn't corroborate the information I got. They typically have between 3-5 applicants a year. 


I'm done applying to all the PhD programs. The Canadian program's application is due Jan. 31st. The website seems to highly suggest contact with faculty.


Would it be ridiculous if I just now reached out to a POI?
