I think my advisor hates me. - Officially Grads - The. Last time we met my friend, Ph D student and working academic ‘Dave’ he was walking through the Valley of Shit. Changing advisors is allowed in my department, but is it bad form to do so? Also, is spring of my first year in a masters program way too late to make such a big change? Its hard to imagine pressing forward with my current thesis idea now that I know my advisor doesn't think I am committed to it and doesn't see me staying in the discipline.
When the relationship with your PhD supervisor turns toxic. Dave emerged from the deathly valley soon after I published that post, but he has now hit the last phase of Ph D study, which I call “Ph D detachment”. When the relationship with your PhD supervisor turns toxic. ‘He told me my experiments fail because I’m bad,’ said one PhD student. After unsuccessful attempts to fix it with the help.
The 5 Top Traits of the Worst Advisors The Dave, somewhat more colourfully, calls this phase “Screw you thesis! He tells us why in this post, but caution – there’s some strong language! In our department, PhD students graduate with 3 to 4 paper-format chapters in their thesis. My advisor just wants more and more. I am his 4th PhD student. The other 3 are in their 7th and 8th years. On several occasions my advisor has told me that I will not graduate before the other 3 PhD students who started before me.
Help. my advisor makes me want to die - Coursework. I’ve had this conversation a few times over the past few months and it was really starting to bug me. I hate my advisor and I think he hates me. He is a strange, arrogant, rude little man and today he finally made me cry after expressing his severe 'dismay' for my slowness at getting a particular task done, and even emailing this to another faculty member whose job it is to make sure new grads are doing okay.
