Follow Up with Acceptance

    Hi PF!

    I just got accepted to a PhD program and formally accepted the offer a few days ago. Alongside the formal acceptance, I was requested to email an office coordinator for that department so they could arrange air fare for me to visit the campus. I emailed that individual a few days ago, but have had no response yet. How long should I wait for an email response before I should call?

    Thanks

    Josh

    A week, maybe two. Certainly more than a few days.

    Thanks for the response Vanadium. I should say the weekend I visit is March 4th and 5th (they sent me that before I accepted the offer). Do you still think I should wait a few weeks?

    That would push it more towards the week, and not two.

    That "few days" includes this past weekend, right? Imagine Monday morning in a typical university bureaucracy. :oldwink:

    Hahahaha when you put it like that, I suppose it does. I emailed on Friday, so yes, that's a good point. Thank you both for your advice!
