Thesis-committee selection


Chemistry Guy:
How should I go about selecting a thesis committee to direct my research? What questions should I ask potential members? What qualities should I look for? Should I go for big-name, high-profile faculty members or should should I pursue junior faculty members? Should I choose faculty members that I already know and have a relationship with or should I choose totally unfamiliar professors. Please help. Any advice on this would be welcome.

Ask students and faculty these questions: "What percentage of the students who had Professor X on their committee actually finished their degree? What percentage finished on time?"
