Sorry to hear about your ordeal. Rewt's advice is good, but more specifically you could ask them to explicitly say that you "received funding starting on date x, which ceased on date y", that way it is clearly stating you have no source of income or loan, which may have more effect in terms of convincing them you need the financial support. Good luck.
Happy New Year everyone!
I am to submit another manuscript shortly and felt it would be good to get ideas on what is a good strategy when picking reviewers to put forward for submission of a paper.
I have experienced that reviewers can expedite or hamper the submission process. More often than not, submission can be impeded by reviewers who haven't properly read the paper, don't have the relevant knowledge (though they should according to their profile), or are just difficult for the sake of it hence I think it would be a good thread for myself and others.
Would be good to hear your thoughts and experiences.
Sorry to hear you feel that way. Another person might view the Clinical Research Assistant role a good position, whilst you potentially view it as a failure, so I think despite having challenges in the pursuit of a PhD, there is some faulty thinking at play here (we all have this to a degree).
I think the following book will help you. Particularly, the section on External vs Internal centred values.

Wishing you all the best,
If you are really set on getting a PhD, you could first do an M.Res (Masters by research). That way you'll have 1 (sometimes 2) research projects to demonstrate your research abilities. Do these well and you shouldn't have trouble applying after you've completed it.
