Neel Posted August 24, 2012 Share Posted August 24, 2012 I am in a Phd program in a top tier school. I just saw that for my adviser's class, I received a B+. My other grades for the semester are A and A-. I know there are other threads on this topic in this site, I also know that the B+ matters and does not look good. My question is this: Should I speak to my adviser about the grade? This is my first semester so i need all the advice I can get. I know the paper was not upto mark and am aware of its failings, but had to submit it within the deadline that i agreed to. My adviser is not the easiest to talk to. He is quite a confidence crusher....and since I know what the faults of the paper are, I am trying to find ways to avoid confrontation. On the other hand, I know meeting my adviser about the paper will help him know I am keen to work hard. I know this has been discussed but does a B+ really mean the professor is sending a message? Also is it common to want to avoid your adviser like the way I do.. in my world it does not read as a good sign, not in a Phd program. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
