An engineering Ph.D student at my local higher Ed.
institutional has passed her candidacy exam and
dissertation proposal only 3 weeks ago. One morning, her
electronic pass to gain access to research lab wouldn't let
her in. Later, she learned that PI of her research group has
fired her. If no other research group will take her in,
does it translate to the fact that her Ph.D study/career
with this particular
institution is finished? I hope it is for good reason to
expel her thus by the PI.
