Three Qualities of a Great Ph.D. Advisor
A professor is usually well trained for doing research, for writing proposals, and probably for teaching. But most of them were not trained to advise. They learned while advising students. While there are many great professors, you have to be careful when choosing one. Getting a Ph.D. is hard. And it will be a lot harder if your advisor does not help. Don’t enter a Ph.D. program unless you are passionate about research and want to be a professor. An unmotivated Ph.D. student leads to a disaster for both the student and the advisor.
