Here is an email I got a few minutes ago from Dr. Jones, director of History Graduate Students at Virginia Tech, to remind me that my thesis proposal will be due very soon! EEEEEKKKK!!!!!!
Dear Thesis Writers,
I hope your summer has been filled with much research and many insights about your thesis topic!!
And, I know, I know…you don’t want to be reminded that summer is coming to an end and your thesis advisor will soon be expecting to see a draft of your thesis proposal.
This is just a gentle reminder that the schedule is: draft to advisor no later than Sept. 1; revised draft to committee by Sept. 15; final draft to me by Sept. 30. Defenses are scheduled for mid to late October.
If you haven’t done so already, you will probably want to touch base with your advisor to remind her/him about this schedule.
Enjoy the last few days of break,
