I know it feels like you are bothering them (I'm the queen of avoiding these type of interactions), but people tell me it's a good thing to do. You'll also get a direct answer. And/or email the department contact point. I thought about it! I've heard mixed advice about emailing the prof directly though, that it can be seen as annoying. I reeeally want to ask but I also don't want to ruin my chances, lol. Not even sure how I would phrase it. Well, I did it anyways. No idea if this was the right thing to do or not. Just said "Hi Dr. __, I hope all is well. Just wanted to check in on your decision timeline for graduate applications. I'm still very excited about the potential opportunity to join your lab. Please let me know if there is any more information you need from me. I look forward to hearing from you again soon!" I re-read our old email chain and she mentioned in November that she would get back to me by the end of the quarter which I guess I assumed was December, but I realize now that I actually don't know since I've always attended schools that have a semester-based system. So maybe the quarter ended in January? Anyways, she said that interviews would likely be in February and since that's just a week away I figure it was appropriate to check in... I'm probably way over thinking this. Send good juju my way guys, I hope I didn't just sabotage my application Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
