baba88 Posted October 12, 2013 Share Posted October 12, 2013 Hi guys, I have started my PhD in Canada last year but due to the life difficulties that I am having here I would like to change to a graduate school in U.S. In addition, I could not go along with my supervisor we had a lot of difficulties. Basically, each year 2 students drop his group My question is that to change to a graduate school in U.S. from PhD degree, I know I would be questioned about the reasons. I could not tell the problems related with my supervisor but I can tell the living difficulties and personal reasons for me. In that case, if I can not get a good recommendation letter from my current institution, what will be my chances to be accepted a grad school in U.S? I know transferring is not common and not an easy process but it woul be very useful someone who has an experience on this issue could share his stories or difficulties that she/he had. BTW, I am keep in touch with some profs in U.S. but they do not know I have some problems with my advisor. What do you think that if I skip this part of my life as a PhD and instead of that write research assitant or some related words that can cover my last year in PhD?
