- 10 Mistakes Graduate Students Should Avoid:
- Email of the Month
- Congratulations TA-DA!™ Graduates
Email Question of the Month:
Your methodology is based on what others who have written on this topic have done. Have they done a good job using the methods they used? If so, why not used the same methods or improve upon their methods.
What were their hypotheses? Were they right? Wrong? Almost right or almost wrong? Did they forget to consider something? Where is the gap that needs to be filled in the research?
You are not starting from scratch but building on what others have done on the topic…Have someone else done sustainable development through urban design in a different type of climate? If so, then that should be a study you should model yours after and then figure out how your study is different because your climate is different.
Wishing you all the best and hope that I have given you and answer to help move you forward.
TA-DA!™ Graduates —
Congratulations on Your Success
Dear Dr. Carter, I am proud to say that I passed my defense the day before yesterday, and I can now call myself “Dr. G.!” I’m also pleased to report that all four examiners signed off on the paperwork immediately since there were no revisions required. Needless to say, I’m thrilled.
Thank you again for the wonderful TA-DA program. It was so helpful in keeping me on track and motivated. Your suggestions of what to do on days when writer’s block set in were especially helpful. Even on days when I didn’t do any writing, I still made strides towards completion by working on other necessary tasks, and that kept my spirits and my enthusiasm up. Thank you again for your help and your interest. – Dr. Janet M. G. Temple University
