There are some very talented ones that can help people, but there are also a substantial percentage who are outright quacks if they follow some of the more ridiculous, unscientific ideas of their training.

This. I have had a DO that was far better than some MDs as my GP, just gave a lot more hugs than I was used to. And I have had MDs that were not helpful at all. It boils down to the individual, how well you think they are treating you, and your doctor-patient relationship with them.

Thanks mamselle. It sounds like you had some terrific advisors. I'm wondering, were you an undecided student at this point? I would like to work with undeclared/undecided/exploratory students in the future, but right now I work with students in a specific academic department.

AND YOU DID IT AGAIN!!!  Stop already with the baseless finger pointing.

I think even the President might be noticing that your pony is invisible...

But is it device friendly?

And can you dance to it?

I don't know if this is actually Bang worthy, but...

I'm giving an exam today and I'm greeted at the door of the classroom by two students who tell me that  they just don't have it today and will not be able to give their best performance, so they would like to schedule a makeup exam.   On the one hand I appreciate the honesty rather than getting a doctor's note off the internet, but it's not exactly fair to everyone else.

I think that if you neither laughed nor stared at them and flatly said, "Bullsh!t," you showed admirable restraint.

Somehow this reminds me of the professor I had in grad school who would occasionally stop by our offices to let us know he wasn't ready to teach us that day so class was cancelled.... I guess none of us told him "Bullsh!t"!

But we thought it.

I've had this happen to me before.  I got the email about an account for me from the journal before the review request.  You can still turn down the review request.

I disagree.  I have been through bully chairs.  You have to treat them as the bullies they are.  Document all the bully BS they provide and lay out the case that they ARE a bully and that you will no longer tolerate it.  Seek out whatever is available to you to put a stop to this once and for all. 
File a grievance and seek legal advice if that is what it takes.  Force the dean to deal with it.  The dean sets the tone.  IF this is allowed to continue, it will continue!   Is this the environment you want to work in?  What are you prepared to do about it to make it better?
