Research interests are malleable, the need for someone to actually mentor you and help you grow as a researcher is not.
I am torn between two departments.
First is good with professors who are working in the same line of research I want to work on, but they are mostly old (60 to 65+). Not sure if they would be around for too long. I don't find the research profiles of the younger professors very interesting.... yet!
Second is slightly lower-ranked department but I really LOVE the work of two people working there, and who are renowned in the field. They aren't young and aren't old either... say, around 40-year-old associate professors. However, they have the reputation of not giving a ton of time to their students and expecting way too much from them.
Considering these two factors only, do you think the latter program would be worth it?
