Is it ok not to reply to professor's email during weekends?

  1. Jul 18, 2015 #1
    After asking a professor about undergraduate research on Friday, I received a positive reply that very evening. The professor also asked me to send him my CV. Hovewer, it would take me some time to make it. Would it be ok to send the CV on Monday, or is it rude to take more time than him to reply?

    It's fine to send it to him on Monday.

    You could possibly acknowledge the receipt of his email, and state you are preparing your CV and it will be sent at some point on Monday.

    Stevie's answer is a wise move.

    I agree with this. Just state that you're preparing it and making sure it's up to date.
