When should I email my adviser? How long will it take my adviser to email me back?

You should email your adviser only when you have a question that you think she/he can answer in a couple of sentences, and your adviser will normally get back to you within 2 business days.  If you are unsure if your adviser can give you a "quick answer," go ahead and email us. If we believe the topic requires further discussion, we will suggest you schedule an appointment.
