suck email

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

suck email

Post by holycow » Mon Jan 30, 2012 5:39 pm

Way back in December, from one of my top choice institutes, a professor had given me an encouraging reply about admissions.
He had said he would be interested in working with me and that my background suits him. I haven't heard from him since then.

I was wondering if I should email him and tell him that, if he is considering my application and if he so wishes to interview me then I would be willing to visit him at the institute.

Even though this means spending hundreds of dollars on flight and hotel, I do not mind doing it.

My question is do you reckon the email will adversely affect my application? I don't care if it has no positive effect, but I don't want to hurt my chances doing this.
