Dr. Wolfe,
I am in my first DIS course, so far so good. I stumbled upon your blog by accident really, but it gives me great hope. Initially I had a mentor with a very unusual and unrelated background to my degree and dissertation. But luckily he was switched out within a week or so and I got someone who I think is very good. I got through the last RSH and COMPS with him. Thanks for writing this, it helps!
