now she insists that this class has to have a Best Thesis, when she hasn't signed one with her approval. the students have stopped revising out of discouragement. good thing ive given them their grades already as soon as their defense panelists signed, so that won't affect their graduation.
i tell my Chair, through whom she coursed the message through-- how can there be Best, when the students haven't finalized their revisions for her and she hasn't signed but kept returning them back?
the Chair's lame excuse is that it wouldn't look good for the Department and the College not to have a Best Thesis, when it always had one for the past many years (under my tutelage, too, mind you.)
go figure how convoluted PhD minds work.
form over substance again.
i am soooo tired of this shit.
