papercuts Posted January 11, 2010 Share Posted January 11, 2010 Okay let's move away from our own stories and conflicts and do something else to pass the time: announce here the application or faculty that has been most helpful. This might seem exceedingly unnecessary as they probably aren't going to be reading these forums (which might be a good or bad thing I don't know), but in an area which is not always as personalized or polite they do deserve some attention for being very nice and helpful. I would like to mention Susan Kandel from Harvard Graduate School of Education. After I sent her an email about my two typos in the statement I thought that was it. She would be like "You're not only a big idiot for doing that kind of thing in the first place, but now you're sending me a pathetic email to whine about it ? What are you applying to here, kindergarden?"... She was instead very nice and offered a possible solution to my problem too. If only other admission or faculty contacts were as nice, or are they?
