Information session, thesis-writing

First things first, I gave the information session, which was aimed at second-year undergraduates eyeing graduate study abroad. Of course, they realized that I was strongly biased towards US schools, but I tried my best not to sound as if I was doing advertisements for Ivy League schools, specifically UPenn and Columbia. They realized how complicated it was to apply for graduate school in general, at least vis-à-vis undergraduate processes that are, for them, painless when it comes to liberal arts or pure sciences. At least I was being transparent…

Then comes actual thesis-writing. I got nothing done in the lab this week but I spent the better part of 3 days building on the file I called the “inventory”, which began way back in the summer as the compendium of what I really did in the research project, but I realized by now that, if I could expand on the literature review that preceded the actual work, I could make a thesis out of it.
