Advice for RA situation

Postby barry » Wed Jun 01, 2011 6:57 pm

So I'm getting a little weirded out about an RA position i accepted around february although I have communicated as recently as mid may with the professor. The professor said i would need to be available all summer, but i have emailed twice since school ended and have gotten no response. I don't want to freak out because I'm sure that they are just busy grading exams or something, but i don't know whether to just sit on my hands and wait, keep emailing ( i don't want to come off stalkerish haha) or try another means of communications. Any advice?

Just wait. Never underestimate how little professors care about something as trivial as students.

Try contacting his secretary/assistant. They probably know more about your professor's schedule than your professor.
