Long story, but the college wrote to me recently wanting to know if I intended going back to complete this. The only way, AFAIK to change supervisor was to make a formal complaint, which I didn't do. I just need a few ppl's opinions on what to do, should I try meet with them and see what can be done or should I stay away? Personally I don't want to go back with the same supervisor.
It's hard to drop a supervisor, and the formal complaint route doesn't always work to your benefit and could damage future career prospects (I in no way agree with this, but that's just the way it is unfortunately). How about this suggestion: arrange for a co supervisor, once this person is aboard you can make sure that all three of you are present at meetings - its truly amazing how much some individuals attitudes change when a 3rd party is present. All going well, the new person could become your primary supervisor over time....
