chocolate_blanche Posted February 7, 2010 Share Posted February 7, 2010 Hi everyone, I intend to apply for PhD programs in the States for the Spring/ Summer term 2011. Usually the rule goes that if you should start contacting prospective advisors 10 - 12 months prior to the starting term. For Spring/ Summer term it is a bit tricky because the deadline to apply is often in September/ October, which means the contact should be done between January and April of the same year. Say since I would like to start in January 2011, the deadline to apply is October 2010 then by that rule, I should start writing some emails about now. However this is the time when profs are busy selecting students to start in the Fall 2010. I am a bit lost and confused here, so would appreciate any input/ experience at all about when to start contacting. Also is there anyone here who knows anything about spring/ summer admissions for engineering @ Columbia and Carnegie Mellon? Any input would be very much appreciated.
