    hey guys - to those of you who have some experience dealing with this - i have received an email from the hiring manager who interviewed me for the research associate role saying that they are still processing things and I should hear back as soon as possible.
    My question - is it okay to reply to this maybe expressing my interest in the position once again? Would that sound too desperate? Would you advise against it? Please help!
    Thanks

    Just say something along the lines of, "Thanks for the heads up; hope to hear from you soon."

    Re: Recruitment for pre-doctoral RA roles (economics)

    Hi! I wanted to ask for advice regarding the pre-doctoral role and didn't think a new thread would contribute too much. So here's my question:

    I have been encouraged to apply to a strong pre-doctoral program by someone connected to it. I'm graduating from undergrad this year and have strong research experience and coursework- thus my CV is competitive (as attested by someone in the program). Yet, due to personal reasons, my GPA in the first two years is pretty low, while in the last 2 years is 3.9. I'm applying for masters programs in order to reduce the noise in my application, so ideally I would apply to this program after completing my masters, but the fact that I'm being recommended makes applying now potentially better.

    My question is, how do I talk about my low initial GPA? Should I be candid and address the personal circumstances (which I don't really like discussing) or just mention that I've worked hard to make up for a lower initial GPA? How much does GPA matter for these types of roles?

    Slightly time-sensitive, so any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!
