Graduate School Sadness

I think graduate school can be an entirely awesome and fulfilling experience. People complain over lack of sleep, difficult classes, daunting research. I love it all.

But what I don't love at this particular university and in this program is the treatment of students by the professors - particularly when they have to TA. They hold this over the graduate student's head like a threat. "Do as I say or leave graduate school because you're too poor to pay."

When has "TA" become synonymous for "servant"?
