Best is to write mails to current students in your prospective nstitutes, as scheng75 said.Originally Posted by mosel
have you guys been e-mailing a lot of current students? like asking lots of different information from several people, or did you just email to find out some simple answers. i'm not sure what's normal, and i don't want to overstep my bounds or be annoying. i find that the people i've contacted probably have a lot of answers or opinions on the specific issues i'm concerned with. and they can say a lot more about what you'll face next year, probably more so than what a prof could say. so far, everyone's been very helpful, so i recommend it as well. are you guys asking about what it's like to work with X professor, or do you think that's maybe getting a little too personal? perhaps I'm just overthinking this. just curious what other people think.Originally Posted by awhig
I concur with others.. ann arbor would be the best choice . Pros of ann arbor include, great research work with great professor in thermal & fluid side, which you intend to,though i am not sure you are targeting the conventional thermo fluid or the contemporary one. It has a great funding resource. Its in Michigan. Its second in USnews for Mechanical. Tamu is great for conventional thermo fluid like turbulence, combustion, convection or tribology but as funding with these subjects are getting tougher and tougher these days and tamu is admitting people without fund in these field, cons of tamu also includes is weather and the research facility in micro or nano level.
