You: a professor.
I: student/applicant for your program.
How do you feel about phone contact? Details inside.

I have a question about a grad program that the program coordinator could not answer. It's about my portfolio. I want to work with you; your research is great. I want to call you and tell you about my background, including a potential area of mismatch.
I am polite and used to talking with professors. I generally have a good ability to gauge when people are at liberty to talk. I know profs are busy. But I'm wondering whether it's worth my effort to apply and basically am wondering if a conversation would be acceptable.
Would you be ok with this?
Is it a kiss of death?
Is it??? Warn me please!!!
