alecvdpoel Posted October 6, 2015 Share Posted October 6, 2015 I was just wondering how you all approach making contact with professors or department chairs as far as just getting your name out there. I went to an information session at one of the top programs I'm considering today and one of the professors / department chair spoke and gave us advice about applying and gave us information about the program. She also informed us she's one of the main people that goes over applications, so I figure implanting my name in her head wouldn't hurt. I asked her a few questions today so I figure that's enough to mention in an email, and maybe expand upon a question I asked her. I also feel a bit strange doing this, and I don't want this to hurt me, as if I'm trying to "weasel my way in" so to speak. There isn't anything specifically I need to know from her that I can't find out elsewhere (I think?), I simply want to convey how much I'd like to be a part of this program and that I'm a good fit for the school.
