First offer

Just got an email from the University of Alberta (in Edmonton) admitting me in the PhD, with a very very decent funding package.

Soon the nagging of University of Toronto for an answer will start, if I can find an elegant way to do this.

  1. Congratulations – that’s excellent news! Perhaps mention your funding package in conversation with potential supervisors at Toronto (not sure exactly how your PhD system works)…

      It works mostly the same as everywhere else. Especially when you are being courted, it’s possible to try and raise the stakes a little. But Alberta is indeed the fastest; one application I sent was due on Monday, from which I doubt I won’t hear until late March–but by that time I’ll probably have made up my mind already.
