Hi folks, It seems like time has come for me to hunt a master's director and I wish to understand what the correct social dynamics is for approaching a professor before I go in a screw it up. Tell me if this makes sense. I look at the professors' profiles and eliminate those who are working on things I am sure I don't want to be a part of. To those that remain, I send an email asking for an appointment. I go to the appointment and I don't arrive late. This is when I'm unsure about the attitude to take. Is it appropriate to simply ask them to talk to me about what they are working on and ask them what is it I'd be doing if they were my research directors? Or is this a completely wrong attitude and I'm supposed to go there with my head down and ask them to mercifully accept the donation of my soul for whatever might amuse them (minus the metaphors). Anyway, I'd appreciate ANY advice any of you could give me regarding all this procedure, thanks!
