Re: Can I mention I have been e-mailing a professor at my #1 choice?

I've heard that name dropping is good because it shows specific interest in the school.  Just be careful not to sound like a braggart or a suck-up when you're doing it.

So what you do is you say, "I'm especially interested in the Co-op program relating to the Seven Dwarves, which Professor Snow White has been kind enough to tell me about via e-mail.  From what Professor White tells me, it's a perfect program for me, because my special interests and undergrad research have focused on being Sleepy and Grumpy at the same time."

And then Snow White never gets mentioned again.
