Main Question or Discussion Point
Do students usually give gifts to professors after the professor wrote a recommendations or helped the students out? If so what kind of gifts? for physics professors? and for math professors?
:rofl: :rofl: just lost a mouthful of dr. pepperWait...you mean I was supposed to give my professors gifts after getting my letters of recommendation? Shoot, how much is applying to grad school going to cost me?
Well, I'd better head over to the liquor store.
Yeah, definitely. I know that my own research advisor likes to brag excessively about his former students.I agree with SD. Of course, you should thank the professors who agreed to be your referees, but IMHO there is no need to give gifts. I reckon the best gift you can give is to get your PhD and become a good scientist; that way they know it was worth the reference, and can say "I taught that kid!"
