I am wondering what looks better on a CV: that I published a lot, but stayed in my PhD institution for 6 years or so, _or_ that I finished my thesis quickly, and graduated quickly? Some professors' CVs say they started their PhD in 1968, and finished in 1971 (Charles Thorn of University of Florida), which seemed awfully impressive. I've been working as quickly as I can: I've formed my committee more quickly than most, and have made 3rd author on a paper. I've just finished up my 2nd year as of now (May 3, 2013). Thoughts?
