I planning to drop out of a PhD program after one semester and apply to another top university for a PhD program. This is because of my encounter with a professor with little experience and who is very intervening, non-perceptable, unapproachable and worst of all willing to go to any extent to sabotage your career. The advisor meddled with credits to make sure that I cannot be in good academic standing even though I got A’s in courses. Obviously, I have to submit my transcripts from all universities, and my quitting and grade will raise some questions. So, what can I say in my statement of purpose (or anywhere, I suppose) that will put my quitting in the best possible light?
Thanks in advance for all your help!
