As you know, we track student research performance in order to provide timely advice and comments on your research efforts. If you do not identify your research advisor, your PI cannot complete an assessment of your accomplishments and you will not receive a detailed review of your strengths or areas in which you need to improve. Identifying your PI is therefore, vitally important.
If you do not identify your PI, there are several administrative consequences: 1) You will not receive a grade and may be unable to register for the next semester causing you to lose your student status, stipend, visa etc.; 2) You may be placed on administrative probation (if you already have an outstanding MP or C grade this would precipitate your dismissal from the GSBS); 3) Your department may receive fewer education dollars in next year’s budget.
