  1. students of color have spots in programs?
  2. Hi everyone, recently my advisor is a little bit cross with me...I think he assumed that I have hyped him a bit for another student (which is not true) and now he has a new prospective student that he doesn't want to take on but might have to because he is the only one who works in the area the other student is interested in. Will he hold it against me if he thinks i encouraged it lol...his main goal is to publish so he may be a bit annoyed?
  3. It might be a silly question but any help here?
  4. It's hard to assess who is a jerk based on the profile alone...
  5. Hi everyone, I have been searching some academics CVs for some time and they have their files on dropbox. Can they see I accessed it through the website? I don't want to look like a stalker.
  6. anyone else has thoughts on this?
  7. That doesn't seem fair. If I had an older parent or parent of a young child, surely the department would ask me to confirm availability?
  8. I was assigned a TAship with a clash with one of the main courses I wanted to take next semester. Before this, I wasn't consulted or asked if the time suited me especially since it's early morning before 8 am class.

    Are you given choice when deciding a TAship?
  11. I have someone who wanted to know how many of you have received fellowships?
  12. Actually, I don't like the idea of being taken advantage of in these situations but I also want to maintain a friendly relation with my housemate. I am listening to all these responses and realising my expectations were unrealistic.
  13. I think the PhD is taking up most of my time and that also makes it hard to do other things which I would love to do. I also love to travel but it hasn't been easy in the recent months. Though once the lockdown eases up, I hope things get better and I can make my own circle of friends
  14. Yeah I tried counselling. It was okay but not too effective for me in the first few sessions. I agree, the age gap is big and that may also be the issue here
  15. Yes, my expectation are high when I invest time on them and want them to commit the same effort and time on me as well. But this does not seem sustainable, that makes sense..I am trying to balance and not go overboard in my kindness because my expectations build up after that
