What does a university want from a graduate student?

A clear independent thinker.

Does that mean you cannot ask for help? Of course not. Know whom to ask and when to ask. Always do your share. Officially you have supervisors, committee members, libraries, examination panels, etc. Unofficially you have friends, family, and colleagues. And if wise, you have an editor. This should be an ongoing relationship from early on in your studies. A good editor will walk the long road with you and be that independent academic voice often so needed. Be sure to save or use some of your funding to pay an editor. Students often talk about how edits have meant sanity and a speedier research process.
