How to email asking about application status

Post by kbm96 » Tue Feb 05, 2019 1:30 pm

Help! I would really like to email some grad schools asking about my application status. Is this a good idea? If so, what is the proper way of asking? Thank you in advance! :D

it's way too early to be emailing anyone.

You've got to wait until, like, early March before you start emailing people.

If you're feeling nervous/impatient/paranoid about your apps I think pretty much everyone here can relate to that; that said, it's way too early to be sending followup emails. Based on posts here & gradcafe, most programs haven't even sent out a first round of acceptances yet. Give it til the end of the month at least.
