When it comes time for me to write my dissertation, the only way I can actually write it is if someone buys me a grant so that I can afford to make the time to write it!

I don't know if this was supposed to be a humorous post, and I apologize if it is.

Instead of asking to "buy you a grant" you should be actively working towards writing to get one if at all.
Getting a PhD requires tenaciousness and learning to work through failures and hardships. It's a terminal degree.
I myself finished writing my dissertation working full time because grant money was finished. Took longer than expected but it's a hoop to jump through.

Hi all,
I've gone through 4 interviews at a large company and I butchered the 4th one with the VPS. I felt I could've answered some questions better however I wasnt the most prepared. I did kill the first three with my boss to be and his boss so there is that.

The VP said that I would probably speak to his boss while he figures out the logistics at the end of the interview and I didn't ask great questions but i'm not sure if that's a for sure thing.

How does y'all prepare the for last one

Any tips?
