I just got my Research Attachment Proposal list and what a head scratch. The university has given us 93 research projects to choose from and if I had to be bluntly honest - I've only seen 3 which have "appealed" to me. Hard part is that we have to pick 5 projects and list them in the order of preference. Tough choices! At the moment I've picked another 2 but I have NO interest in them and would be quite disappointed if I ended up getting placed in them. At the moment I'm doing more research into the other research topics to see what seems interesting despite not knowing much about those other research topics. What a tedious process...especially going through each and every single research topic, but if I want to pick something I would do well in then I guess it is worth my time to look into each thing.
For those just joining my blog and reading around - please let me direct you to my archives over to the right. I've written a few blog entries on application and interview tips which may come in handy...especially the interview tips as it is interview time now.
Good luck to those who are having their interviews and those who are still waiting to hear from their universities - don't fret! Be patient...no point of worrying as no matter how much you worry it's not like the faster you'll find out about whether or not you'll get an interview. There's nothing you can do so try and relax and concentrate on your school work!
Those with an offer: YAY congratssss!!!!! Exciting stuff. Just meet those offers and you'll be itching to get to university and embark on your new journey.
