Alumni Interview Scheduling Confusion

wimmiettwimmiett Registered User Posts: 367 Member
So Monday this week, I received an email from an UChicago alumni in the area and she offered me an interview tomorrow, Saturday morning. However, she only said Saturday in the morning, she didn't give me a specific time or anything to meet at the cafe. She hasn't responded to either of the emails I have send her in response (sent on Wednesday and yesterday). A little confused about what to do if she never emails back. I'm considering showing up at the cafe when it opens and just hanging out until noon just in case she appears. Do you think this is a good idea, assuming she may have just scanned over my response email confirming the date and didn't catch that I needed a time?

    You can send her another email today which says you are not sure what time to meet her in the morning and you plan to be there, say, at 8AM (even the cafe opens at 6AM I think 8AM will be perfectly fine).

    If for some reason your previous emails were lost (in junk mail) and she decides to check before she goes (whatever time she has in her mind) she can catch your last email. She will realize she has not been clear about the time and she will go there sooner than later or call you (you should leave her your phone number). Usually she should have your confirmation before she goes.

    Bring a book to read when you are waiting. It is not a big deal.

    Good luck!
