This happened to my roommate when she started her PhD! It took her an extra 8 months to find another lab after the experience. You need to report that professor for stealing your idea. Don't let the same thing happen to you.

I hate to be the downer, but this is how academia works. Ph.D students get their work stolen/have credit taken all the time, which took so much more planning than a thesis. I'm not saying it's right or that it doesn't totally suck, but I really doubt anyone is going to do anything. Sorry OP, it's a shitty world out there.

Incorrect, 7. She told him the general subject she was going to write the thesis on. Theses are incredibly important for passing courses in college-level settings, and subjects are quite hard to find that you'd be willing to invest time in and be able to succeed in. Basically the professor stole a very long time of planning.

No, OP told his/her professor what topic he/she was going to use for their thesis paper. The professor liked it so much that he decided to write his own paper on the topic.

well it sounds like if he really likes your subject then you'll probably get a good score on it. I hope he doesn't steal all the credit though, that would be shitty. FYL OP.

yeah, basically listened to all op's thoughts viewpoints and ideas on the subject and decided they were going use them for themself on a paper of their own.
