I may have a dilemma about my mailing address...

I will be moving in Jan/Feb of 2018 (but do not yet know my new address). How important is your mailing address on doctoral applications, when most communications are via email?

Also, I would list a permanent address, but my parents are in the process of retiring, and have moved from our family home.

Has anyone else had this dilemma? What is the best way to handle mailing address changes, so close to application time?

Don't forget to take advantage of mail forwarding services through USPS. That should keep you covered for several months so even if someone uses your old address, you'll be fine.

Depending on how far away you move from your current home you could look into renting a P.O. Box too if there are any available.
