    SSHRC Doctoral 2018-2019

    Hello, so the contest has opened today. Does anyone know what is the font required for the research proposal?
  2. Hello everyone, I will start a PhD next September and my goal is to turn a few of my coursework papers into publishable articles as soon as possible during my PhD journey. Any tips on how to do that? I have never written non-empirical articles for peer review before.

    I failed my thesis.

    Just learned the news today. I am still in shock. I did not expect to fail, even if I knew my thesis was not perfect. I was expecting a pass with revisions. Even my supervisor was not worried for me (she told me so yesterday). I just need emotional support right now. I need not to let my emotions get to me. I have won a major scholarship for my doctoral studies starting in September, so I need to resubmit by August. Otherwise, I am screwed. If I fail a second time, I won't graduate which means that my admission and scholarship offers will be revoked from me.

    Vanier 2018-2019

    Hello, anyone here applying for a Vanier scholarship this year for Fall 2019?
  5. Help! One of the comments from my external examiner on my master's thesis was that although my chapter on the theoretical frameworks I have used is great, I don't stress enough how those frameworks are going to be useful to my analysis. I have been looking online for resources on how to do this, and I can't find anything. Any resources (articles, books) that is easy to understand and practical to help me out? Thanks!

    I failed my thesis.

    I AM focusing on my thesis. How many times am I going to say this for God’s sake? I am doing what I am supposed to do and have been since day 1. and Which path are you talking about?? This sounds very paternalistic.

    Yes but you don’t know me. You guys are putting stuff into my mouth that I have never said or even thought. You’re also misinterpreting my desire to succeed in academia. Whos the admin of this forum? I don’t want to keep on posting here. I’m tired of having to explain who I am.

    This is totally not true. I want to strive to be a better academic and researcher and I take criticism well 99% of the time. You truly do not know me. PS I know how the publication system works. I had one article rejected recently. I did not fret about it and worked happily on doing revisions.

    I just want to delete my account at this point. I’m so tired of having everything I say being misunderstood or misinterpreted.

    I failed my thesis.

    I always give people the benefit of the doubt. Again you are putting words into my mouth. The bad intentions regarding the external examiner are not coming from me and were never my first thought, I still assume the good faith of the examiner. Look, the reason why I looked for support here is that I am the only student in my masters program who took a thesis option. I am looking for support wherever I can find it because I don’t have access to a peer support network at school and none of my friends or family are in academia. I do admit that I regret talking about my situation here. There are a lot of words put in my mouth. Plus, There are a lot of details that you people don’t have about what happened and even if you did, there are still people who would misinterpret my intent or feelings regarding what happened.

    Look you don’t know my background or the reasons why my family and friends said this.

    I failed my thesis.

    Wow I never said anything like you’re mentioning whatsoever. Where have I mentioned that my work was perfect???? And PS you clearly don’t know me. You’re extremely judgemental. I am not spending my time blaming people, I AM working on my thesis and have been since day 1. Leave me alone. You don’t know the details of what happened and you do not know me.

    I failed my thesis.

    My link with my advisor allows me to say those things. Maybe you have a different link with yours. My advisor also thinks it was unfair. That’s why. (And I don’t necessarily agree with what my family and friends think by the way for the reasons you’ve just mentioned, none of my friends and family are in grad school.) PS: I am doing what I am supposed to do. I’m not spending my life thinking about how unfair I was possibly treated. My focus is on getting a pass in order to start my PhD and to not lose my Vanier scholarship. That’s it.

    I already have that type of memo. I am addressing the changes. That’s my plan, regardless of the examiners intentions.

    The Positivity Thread

    I'm glad I spoke with my supervisor and explained to her the pressure I feel daily ever since I learned I failed. She is going to give me feedback on what I have written so far by Tuesday. My anxiety level went down today. I ate ice cream to congratulate me for my good work. I'm a fighter. I'll make it, one day at a time.

    Yes, I have another professor who is going to read my thesis. Thanks!

    I failed my thesis.

    She has told me that she does not agree 100% with the evaluation made by the external examiner. She thinks the examiner was too severe. I told her that my family and some of my friends even think that this examiner purposefully want to fail me out of jealousy or something (I'm well-known in my field of study where I live, so the examiner must know who I am according to my friends and family). But I don't know if she purposefully wants to fail me, I tend to give the benefit of the doubt to people most of the time. My supervisor also told me that she has a lot of empathy for the situation I am in (may lose Vanier and doctoral admission). Either way, my supervisor thinks that there are very few chances that I fail again if I apply everything she mentioned in her comments (which I plan on doing). She told me that if that examiner fails me again, I can report it to the Dean. Also, the examiner took one extra month to correct my thesis when the deadline was within 4 weeks. That gives me one month less in terms of time to correct my thesis...

    I failed my thesis.

    My thesis advisor apologized to me today. She said I should not have failed and she entirely understands the pressure I am feeling right now.
  21. I am not in the same field as you, but I also failed my master's thesis. I am working on resubmitting. Hang in there, we can do it! xx

    Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    I feel like crying. Too much pressure.
  25. According to my university's policy, I cannot speak to her (potential conflict of interest) which sucks. The only thing I have noticed while looking at the theses she supervised is that the theory framework chapters are relatively short while mine is 10 pages... I will take a look at those again. Thanks!
