Mentoring Scenario 2 Discussion


The point to be established is whether or not the faculty member is serious about supervising your thesis research. Opening a discussion of possible thesis topics is one way of assessing the situation. Either the discussion will lead to a narrowing of thesis possibilities, or it will become clear that no thesis will result. 

Either way you are ahead, because you will not have wasted more time.
