keephappy Posted July 6, 2012 Share Posted July 6, 2012 I am accepted to MA plus PhD program in USA. Before that, I want to get my another master's degree here. But I have some big problems which are small for some, but not for me. Since April, 2011 I send my thesis to my advisors but haven't received even a feedback about the content yet. My jury day is in this month. My advisor, while having not provided any corrections on the content, blamed me yesterday. She said: ''I am not going to defend you as your advisor in the jury day. You did not do the corrections I emailed to you and you distributed your thesis without my corrections on the content'' I said I did not receive an email of corrections but an email which says ''It is DONE''. And at that point, since I was waiting for corrections, I and another professor interpreted that as ''You can distribute your thesis''. Later, I asked her to forward her corrections. She changed the subject. I emailed her after checking my inbox and junk folder, again asked her to forward her email sincerely. She hasn't replied yet again. A PhD woman said to me ''Be careful, she does such tricks, she is this, she is that.... Email her and ask for corrections...'' We both thought that there is not such an email at all. So, basically she lies. I feel that. By nor forwarding ''that'' email to me, she absolutely accepts that there is not such an email. --------------------------- So I wanted to mention this to another member of the jury who is also her friend and knows her personality. She replied harshly, skipping from email story: ''You say your thesis is good, we could not read it till now, yes, but saying that your thesis is good, you offend your advisor! It can not be good without her! You might be criticized and edited on jury day! You are offending her!'' I accepted this unbelievable remark again to escape confrontation. But I ask, who is offended really? My thesis has not been read until now. I started to send from April 2011 till June 2012. So, if she does not give me corrections, I accept that situation and sometimes say ''it is also good, it will not embarrass you on the jury day''.... I only say this sentence to relieve my advisor, to show that I do not think bad of their academical dysfunction at all. Anyway, I want to take this degree and run away from this dysfunctioning department. She is an Associate Prof. and does not have even 2 master's theses I know that she advised. I might be her first. But she hasn't read me, lies to me, and blames me. All I did was waiting for her corrections. I think of other actions, if they continue this nonsense on jury day and make me fail the jury. But I worked on this master's thesis for at least 1,5 year! What should I do? I will continue to say that I asked for corrections but did not receive it even if I asked for them first.. I hope to see her corrections soon. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
