I notice some people upload where they're applying to their signatures and then remove them later.. any idea why? Should I really care that people *could* find out who I am and where I'm applying?

    It's a personal choice. I think anyone who wanted to could probably figure out who I am. I'm not saying anything here I wouldn't say publicly. If you aren't terribly worried about being identified and how it might impact your online presence, do what you want.

    Probably the same reason that when I remove my glasses, I immediately go into nap mode.

    The wifi adapter died. And the laptop is just 4 months old. The worst part is, my warranty will most probably not be valid here because I bought it in my home country.

    Usually you can rent one from your school library! And make sure you have an external HD with your work backed up. Good luck!

Question, as grad students do you look for professors who are "easy" or more challenging to get more "bang for your buck"?

    I'm ok with some difficulty, as long as the class is useful. Otherwise I don't care as I'd rather spend my time in the lab.

    I don't have the option - all the classes I need to take are only offered once per year, and only one professor teaches the class.

    The professors that I learn the most from are often seen as the "easiest." It's not that they're actually easy, it's that they're less structured and allow for some individuality in assignments and more class discussion. I hate professors that give me no autonomy.
