Hey PaperLantern,

as far as I understand, you have been too tooo tooooo anxious. Just take one step at a time. Set daily targets with the small aims. Eventually, you will attain momentum. Plan your time Properly, that would give you confidence, with each completed task of the day.
Most important, Do not compare yourself with others or to even supervisor. He is well read, for >10 years in the field of study, of-course he will cite many references that you have not come across. But that should not discourage you. Take it positively, Go, back, search again and read.

Getting into a program is a big task. You are doing great, you completed coursework. If you plan your further tasks properly, nothing will stop you. Do not waste time in thinking negative.

Quote From Dunham:
Quote From mannuela28:
Hi I have been admitted to a PhD in canada , University of Lethbridge, in Biomolecular Sciences. Is it worth, If I wish to pursue career in Asia after my PhD ?


From what I was told by Canadians, The PhDs in Canada are long and the salary is rather low. I have never heard of that University before so it is hard to say something about it. How is the University ranked? How good is the group you will do your PhD in?

Personally, I would choose a university where I will receive a salary that allows to live comfortably (there are huge differences between countries), where I have 4 years of funding, a good research environment (equipment etc), nice colleagues and experienced supervisors. That were my criteria when I was looking for a PhD. It takes a bit of time to find something like that but I know some people who took the "easy" road and started the first PhD they could get and now complain about too little money, limited resources in the group or a bad atmosphere, so I think it is worth to spend some time on the search. Depends of course on how flexible you are.

These criteria don't guarantee success but they make PhD life a lot easier I guess. If it is in Canada, UK, Spain or France does not really matter. No one will hire you just because you worked in Canada. There are good and bad universities in every country.

Good luck :)


Thank you For your Words Dunham. Yes the criteria you mentioned are mostly fulfilled by the place I am admitted to.
The University ranks >900+ by THE, but within Canada, its best Undergraduate Research University.
The Laboratory is productive and good as far as I have heard from students already working in it.
I understand that its not about the place, but how much does the University/ Rank matter for post PhD employment?

Quote From AOE26:
And why apply and then ask?


Because, I honestly always thought University rank does not matter much. However, considering the Job market and numerous confusing blogs I have been reading, the thought came in.

Quote From TreeofLife:
Sounds like it, what are you concerned about?


Whether the PhD would be recognized in Asian Countries. Since I am aware that the University I have applied to/admitted to is not very famous/ highly ranked, but the Laboratory ,professor and work is good.
Can't weigh if the University matters or its only work!

I applied to Canadian university for PhD. I have received acceptance with a scholarship (TA+Tuition award) that covers just the tuition and 90% of my rental. Apart from the tuition and living expense, I would need to put my own money to support my food etc requirements.
Its only enough to pay my rental and tuition. I wont have money to buy anything else with the available scholarship!
what could be the way out?

Thank you Tree of life for your words too.
You are right. I need to thoroughly introspect before I jump in next time,
I need to strngthen my mind and willpower to get obscure fear from any such things.

Thank you Dr.Jeckyll and chickpea for your words..
I have not really taken / taking any help.. but I am meditating.
It seems, my personal issues with my best friend-boy friend, who broke up with me during the severe depressing period, more likely reason for my resilience.
you sed it correctly, I was more overwhelmed and thus couldn't cope-up with the situation...
I am trying to be back on track. Meditating, exercising..and pushing away all negative thoughts...

Hie. I was a phd student and I left PhD after 8 months. I failed in my coursework and was unable to cope up with the surroundings and loneliness in institute. So, under severe depression, I left my PhD. Back then I thought, PhD is not my cup of tea. so, i opted fr a corporate job. worked for 9 months again and while working in company realized, I can do a lot better than this stupid work! I want to do phd.So, now I have left my job and looking for PhD options as doing this simultaneously while I was working was not possible.Now, I really really really wanto do PhD and I am ready to fight any battle for it. but, My past deeds aer holding my mind back. Its eating me alive, Did I make a mistake by quitting PhD at first ?? Please help me,, I am in need of some words from you all..
