Dissertation Advisor Horror Stories
In my role as a dissertation coach (I also coach faculty) I hear some amazing stories about how graduate students are treated. Granted, I only hear one side of the story, but in most of the stories the advisors have no excuse. For example, the advisor of one student went to Europe for a semester and did not return emails or phone calls from his student for over a month. Did these people ever write a dissertation? Were they mistreated and now want to get revenge? I just don't understand this.
