As a service to our applicants, as well as to my Admissions pals, I want to encourage you to select an email address that you will use in corresponding with us, and then stick with that address. Our application management system files all materials on the basis of your address; if you use multiple addresses, messages and materials that you send to us can be lost.
If you’re thinking that it isn’t your responsibility to worry about our filing system, you’re absolutely right! But if you don’t worry about it, then you may find us pestering you for some item that you have emailed to us. We can search for it when it disappears into the void, but it’s easiest to keep it from going in that direction in the first place. I should mention that this is true for many other graduate schools that are using the same application system. Sticking to one email address will be a good policy for your correspondence with all your graduate schools.
This is one of the first Admissions Tips blog posts of the new application cycle, but there are plenty more to come. Stay tuned!
