Come to see me to talk about your background.
How can I select a Graduate Advisor? I do not know these professors,
I am a foreign student and I am shy.
Read the Grad. Bulletin. It has plenty information about
all professors, their areas of research and teaching, classes they teach,
and even their publications.
When you will find one or two that you are interested to collaborate with,
just make an appointment and talk to him/her. Our professors are really friendly,
even when busy. You do not need my help in making such appointment.
I nearly graduated from PSU in 1978. I had all coursework but no Thesis.
Can I use these old credits for graduation?
No. Read the Grad. Bulletin for information about courses that can be transferred
from other Universities, and which our old classes still count.
I work all days. Can I come to see you in the evening.
Yes. Call me for appointment. Two times a week I teach OCATE classes in Aloha Capitol Center.
It may be more convenient for you to meet me before or after class there.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I am available after 9:40 p.m.
I called you several times and left you several messages.
You told me few times, that you cannot transfer my graduate
credits from Stanford. Are you sure? Please call me back.
Yes, I am sure. Old credits cannot be taken into account.
However, when addmitted to PSU and with the support of your supervisor,
you will be able to transfer some credits from other Universities,
if they are not too old. You will need the help of your supervisor.
If you are not sure that my answer is correct, consult the PSU catalog
to find the definite answer and save my time.
