I am not done posting "I Quit" stories -- I still have four or five to edit and post. But now that @chemtips has gone and written about the series (for which I thank him), I feel duty-bound to invite success stories as Professor Yoon asked for them:
...So I’d really like to hear some success stories as well. Tell me about times that the system worked: folks who had a hard time in grad school but ended up in good places; mentors who did the right thing by their students; stories of women, minorities, and LGBT students being supported by the field.So, with that, I am asking for those stories, or any of them that you choose to post. E-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org - confidentiality guaranteed. Also, I am posting the first two in that series today.
