I am currently doing my summer research and slowly realizing that the advisor is junk. She is rarely, if ever, present. Doesn't know what I do, except for weekly progress reports. Moreover, she is a very odd character when it comes to relationship with students, e.g. she talks mandarin to most of the lab, while the only two people that don't speak mandarin are rarely spoken to (me being one of them)
I mostly work with the Post-Doc and do the data measurements, etc. Here comes the question. Could I ask the post-doc for a req rather then the prof? Or does it have to be a professor for grad school admissions?
Thanks for any reply.
