Gvh Posted October 7, 2015 Share Posted October 7, 2015 (edited) Hey folks, I have a kind of dumb question I'm hoping some of you can shed some light on. Throughout my experience and reading on here, it is obviously necessary (at least in psychology) to have a POI in mind. However, as I've been contacting different POIs over the past few weeks, it seems like many professors have recommended that I also show how I align with other faculty members in the department as well. I understand their logic, in that, if accepted, the new student won't be a lost puppy if something terrible happens and their one and only POI can't take a student/leaves, etc. But I still found this interesting, as I always thought that a cleaner, tighter focus (i.e. having one person in mind to apply to) made for a stronger application.A secondary concern is this: are you expected to contact multiple profs in a program? Sigh :/So I guess I'm struggling to find a way to mention multiple profs without sounding wishy-washy in my interests. Thoughts on how to do this effectively?
