My first advice for future students is the obvious, most difficult aspect of the project, that is, keeping on top of scheduling and collect data as soon as possible. This really allows the project to move forward without too much hassle. Secondly, I think that if you chose a topic out of convenience as opposed to something you actually find interesting, the project will seem far more painful than it needs to. Finally, really consider the questions you ask. While you do not want to lead respondents towards an answer, really consider the aims of your project and how the questions relate to one another. More focused questions allow for better, more focused and significant conclusions for the final paper.
