I would like to know whether to escalate the issue when my masters thesis advisor is very careless, disorganized and does not provide anything useful to me.
I have started with him around 9 months ago. Following some disappointment over his choice of research topic, I have worked very hard, and now, after 9 months of my research, I am almost done.
However, my advisor is very unresponsive to me:
- I have sent him tons of emails with no responses.
- I have requested to meet him more than 15 times and I was only able to see him 3 times. However, he has confirmed most of these appointments and I ended by wasting my time waiting him in front of his office for 30 -60 minutes before I got the same exact answer every time (I have emergency case sorry)
- Last week I was able to meet with him, and he did not remember the topic or when I have to defend my thesis. (I have sent him more than 10 drafts of my work during the last 9 months.)
- Now, he promised to review my work and give me his feedback by end of Saturday. today is Sunday and I still did not hear from him.
Is it better to escalate the case? Or live with it for the time being and wait for my thesis result?
If I try to escalate later, will they ask me, why you did not speak before, it is too late now?
