huntersghost Posted January 4, 2017 Share Posted January 4, 2017 I'm not sure what the next steps are here, so I appreciate any advice. I am a post-bacc student in the sciences, and learned about an open, funded graduate research assistant (master's) position at my university. I expressed interest to the advisor, we met and chatted, then I had some informal interviews with committee members (they've already been chosen for this study). Everything went well, so I applied to the graduate school for summer 2017 admission (per the advisor's instruction). I received my admissions letter right before Christmas. I have not received word about funding, or anything specific from the department or the advisor. I realize the holiday break is probably the reason for the delay. Should I e-mail the advisor to let him know that I received the admissions letter? Do funding details typically come after the admissions letter? I don't want to be pushy/overzealous, but I also received a job offer over the break, and the amount of funding is the make or break on my grad school vs job decision. Thanks!
