17. I graduate in May...The Honors thesis is a 2-semester thing
I'm just concerned about being prepared for December b/c it's not a traditional thesis (involves designing and carrying out a survey on a few 100 students). I was supposed to be working on it this Summer, but...things got out of hand with the family situation, and it didn't get done.

I KNOW I can do it, I'm just very worried. I need to email my Thesis adviser/mentor tomorrow. Thankfully, it's a poster presentation, so it's not as bad as a lecture type. And yes, my adviser wants me to get published, b/c getting published as an Undergrad is a big deal when it comes to grad school, esp. for Econ, b/c practically nobody does that, and it could mean the difference btwn getting into say, a Harvard PhD program and getting into a Tufts MA program. I'd much rather get into a PhD straight off, b/c of the possibility for more funding. That's what all of my Profs tell me to reach for.

I have a feeling I will be PMing you during the coming months. Thank you so much Maddy :hug:

And, I can't fucking wait for May to be here. If all goes as planned, I will graduate with Honors and Distinction in Economics. That will make it worth it. My parents, sick as they are, would kill me if I dropped out now. All they want is for me to excel and achieve my dreams. I have to do it. Sleep be damned, I guess. :)
