qualthian Posted January 17, 2014 Share Posted January 17, 2014 So we are all applying to universities, and as they always say, advisor is very important. How can we make sure that our future advisor is a good guy? How do we know he will have time for us, treat us good, and watch our progress? We apply to universities after checking professors' papers and citation count, but an excellent reserach record does not mean he is a good choice. So if there is no information on websites like ratemyprofessor and google, how can I learn about them? 1) Asking former Ph.D. students? What if they forward my mail to advisor? Can I trust them with confidentiality? 2) Asking professors that published with advisor? That seems even more dangerous What is your suggestion? How can I make sure that my commitment will pay off. How to make sure I will be happy with my advisor? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
