I sent an email to a potential PhD advisor few months ago where I expressed my interest to join his lab, he replied to me the next day mentioning to me that he would be happy to apply to the program through he is currently recruiting.
Yesterday I sent my application.
Is a good idea to inform him that I sent my application? because I didn't apply directly to him but to the program of the institute he is working and I am a bit nervous.
Thanks in advance!
