  1. The problem is that if I mention finishing my grad-level coursework, they'll want transcripts. It will be hard getting them from my university...
  2. Thank you for such a detailed response! 2) Unfortunately, I've never even seen their previous supervisors and I know nothing about them. 3) AFAIK, they are all PhD students. 4) That's actually a good idea.

I can't go into details to stay anonymous. I can only tell that the lab in which I was working was beyond abusive. Afterward, I collaborated with some friends and published a couple of papers.
