Advice for Future Students
The best advice I would have to give to future students would be to start early; that is, start earlier than you think. As soon as you get your parter, immediately make moves towards asking questions about any ideas for research that pop up in your head. My main problem involved having a quick idea, which I thought would be good and easy enough, which actually turned out to be too confusing and too comprehensive to try and do in 8 weeks. Ask questions about your topic, about your survey, and about your methodology. Also, it may be beneficial to conduct a trial run of maybe 10 surveys to find out the holes in your survey before you give out a bulk number of surveys and its too late.
