Accepting an offer



It seems that two weeks after starting correspondence with a potential supervisor that I have been accepted!
The problem is that there is no funding attached.
I have also emailed other supervisors over the past two weeks but as of yet have not recieved any replies.

The supervisor has told me to carefully consider my options, I was just wondering, how long should I take in my decision process? I guess the sooner I accept, the sooner I can start looking for funding.

On the other hand, should I wait for responses from the other supervisors who may be able to offer me funding?
There are also a couple of supervisors who I have yet to contact.

So I guess what I am asking is, how long should I wait around?


You should be receiving an official letter from Admissions. Those letters usually state the date by which you have to reply to them.

Hi, sorry I've gone and jumped the gun. I haven't been accepted into the university, rather the professor has agreed that he will supervise me...
So yea just want to know how long do you guys think I should wait on replys from other potential supervisors?
