Profs: What Would You Tell Your Grad Students, But Can’t?


Comments are still coming in on yesterday’s post, “Grad Students: What Would You Tell Your Prof(s), But Can’t?” In future posts we’ll take up some of the recurring themes in those comments. In the meanwhile, a friend proposed that we hear from the other side. That could be interesting and constructive (I say, suggestively). And so:

Again, given the sensitive nature of this question, I’m going to relax the commenting requirements. Normally, as per the comments policy (go ahead, take a look) you are required to either sign in via social media by clicking on one of the symbols above the comment box—

For this thread, though, if you choose not to sign in and wish to not use a real email address, you may use [email protected] or a clearly fake one of your choosing. You are welcome to use a pseudonym, but don’t use one that has “anonymous” or “anon” in it.

NOTE: If you use the email address with which you regularly comment on blogs, your regular avatar will appear next to your comment (and be sent out to those who receive email notifications of comments). So if you do not wish your identity to be revealed, [email protected] or some such alternative as your email address when you comment.
