Chapter 4 addresses the broader theme of cultural codes that pertain to new academic adjustment and access to various forms of academic capital in the broader context of advising relationships between US Korean graduate students and their academic advisors. What some communicative agents sought through their initial postings here overall was information or knowledge about one of three distinctive types of cultural codes—the scholarly codes (strong beliefs, deep-seated dispositions, and routine practices that prevail among the vast majority of US graduate faculty members), the linguistic codes (English language skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing, proper speech acts and communication manners, and specialized knowledge and skills), and the networking codes (mutual norms and human skills to build good advising relationships). The label of cultural guiders introduced here was applied to those communicative guiders who shared their experiences, conducted content analysis, and/or offered advice through their alleged comments on queries for any topic of these cultural codes.
