Hi all, This is my first post and I am a first-year Master's student in Plant Pathology. As summer is approaching, I asked my advisor if I could spend my summer in my home country (Thailand). He said I could only go home for 2 weeks! I can't say I'm shocked, but I was hoping for something like a month or so. So I am curious. Is it typical for international grad students to spend so little time at home during the summer? Or it was just my advisor being mean? Thank you for the response!
