To future students, I’d advise them to get a partner. However, they should be careful in selecting one, because the research project is a long one where they’ll be spending a lot of time with one another. Therefore, they’ll want to get a partner that they can come to rely upon to help accomplish the project together. Also, they should try avoiding do anything last minute.
Interesting topics rely on the interest of the people doing the research. If they’re athletes, they could do something that concerns athletics, such as comparing the amount of time athletes spend on getting treatment for injuries to the GPA. If they’re into wildlife, they could do research on LandSea and see if those who participate in the program are those whose families make the most income compared to those who don’t participate.
