I have been growing frustrated with my program so far. It doesn't seem to be a good fit (classes, faculty research interests, town I don't love,etc.) and it has been difficult for me to move forward or find mentoring; I seem to be a little bit stuck and discouraged. I'm about to begin my third year with no publications and a handful of presentations; I'm becoming worried about marketability.

What are conditions under which doctoral students should consider quitting? Is it wise to quit without a plan B?
