Any of you newgrounders in graduate school?
If so, what do you think is important in selecting a graduate professor?
You mean the professor that oversees your thesis work?
I keep hearing their fame is your fame. What do you think?
I've just started with my Master's so I haven't given it much thought yet, but personally I wouldn't choose based on that. I think it's much more important to look at what field of expertise you want to graduate in and from there you'll probably be bounded to a professor already anyway. Also, if he's an arrogant asshole I wouldn't want to work with him either, regardless of how famous he is.
