Aaron Fox -- Personal FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

 

 

Personal FAQs ("Frequently Asked Questions") for Aaron Fox

 

 

Howdy,

Presumably, you came here from my listing on the "Contact" page or from my profile in the "Faculty" section, or else I sent you a link to this page in reply to an e-mail you sent me recently.  If so, and if you have to look up my contact information, there's a good chance it's because you have to ask me something I am regularly asked.

Truthfully, I just can't answer all the cold-call email inquiries I get personally and still get anything else done. And rather than seem rude by just not replying in cases where I don't have an answer for you, or the answer needs to be a straight "no," or I just can't take the time to engage with a complicated inquiry because I'm having a bad email day, I decided to post, here, some common questions and their answers. In some cases, I tell you how to make your communication with me more efficient and more likely to merit a helpful response, so do take a minute to scan below before you hit "send."

I know this is an impersonal policy, and I regret that, but I'm sure you, too, are experiencing some form of email information overload and can relate.  Thanks for understanding! The questions are in no particular order except I put the ones dealing with prospective applicants to the grad program first because it's that time of the year.

I do try to answer as many inquiries as I can, and sometimes I don't get to something I should have gotten to.  If your question isn't answered below, or if the answer below is some version of "ok, get in touch with me by email," and you have sent me an email and not gotten a response, hit me up again.  I don't mind, I appreciate it.  We live in a miraculously connected world.  But lately it sometimes seems overconnected, or maybe that's just me getting old.
