I've been enjoying reading the grad student comments on working with grad faculty, so I'm going to keep the comment thread open for another 24 hours or so. So if you want to comment on it, please do stop by and give us your take on it. Profs get their turn after that.
Commenters: please stay on-topic, and be as succinct as you can while still making your points. I know my moderation policy (such as it is -- I have yet to delete a comment) has frustrated at least one commenter, but I want to make this useful for everyone.
