The Bug Geek

Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.

Dear Dr. H

You’re the only prof I’ve spoken to who thinks that developing some research ideas BEFORE applying for funding/grants is a bad idea. Actually, you’re the only human being I’ve spoken to about this who thinks it’s a bad idea.

The SANE profs I’ve spoken with think it’s a GREAT idea, and are happy to invest some time in me, in hopes of getting both a good student AND good research done in their labs.

On that note, I’m sorry to inform you that I will not be contacting you in the future as a potential supervisor, and I’m going to take all the grant/scholarship money I’m going to win to someone else’s lab.

You lose.
