gatorsoc85 Posted September 17, 2015 Share Posted September 17, 2015 Hello All! I am hearing a lot of conflicting information regarding availability of graduate advisers/chairs for their students. As I get ready for PhD studies, I wonder what should one expect? Obviously, there will be ebbs and flows depending on schedules, but what is the norm out there?Are they available for drop ins at all for their students?Do they usually have weekly, monthly, semesterly meetings with their students?Are they generally responsive to emails?What strategies have folks found helpful?I have a few friends in PhD programs who are miserable because they don't receive any guidance or assistance from their adviser and I would like to avoid that if possible!
