Hi PF, I have applied to several graduate schools and heard back from all but 3, and it is getting pretty late in the game as far as my decision is concerned. That being said I want to know whether or not I have been accepted to these 3 schools ASAP in order to reach my final decision. So my question is this; does emailing the department/admissions commitee harm my chances of admission in any way? Some of the graduate students I know seem to think that this is a little too pushy. Any input would be fantastic!
