Harvard Question

Postby oregon000 » Fri Sep 16, 2011 9:42 am

Briefly describe any written work you’ve produced (e.g., college-level or higher papers, articles, theses, etc., with multiple revisions in response to feedback) under the supervision of an academic advisor or professional editor. (maximum characters 300).


Is this published/unpublished? What did you do if you didn't remember your papers from college?

LOL.

For some of us, mis-remembering isn't the problem.

I hate this section because it won't allow quotation marks. Very annoying.

I also wrestled with the 300 character limit, which seems ridiculously low. I had to put a general "Contributor to Publications" due to the character limit. Hopefully, they'll just look at my resume for the details.

Maybe I'm misreading, but I took it to mean that anything would suffice, even a general paper that wasn't necessarily a "thesis." It says college level work that was supervised by an academic adviser, so I would think a term paper for a course would work if you can dig one up. I just put titles, because the character limit is so low that you can't really describe anything.

Like if you can look at your transcript and see that you took a USFP class, and vaguely remember a term paper where you had to argue a particular point or synthesize schools of thought in foreign policy, I would just put that. I'm not sure with the character limit how much more anyone else would put anyway. If you had a "real" journal publication or something, it would take the whole space just to list 1 entry.

So you could put: Analysis of US Foreign Policy, research paper on XXXXXX, Another Class, research paper on the Iraq War.

I could be totally wrong here, but I think this section is a tough one for anyone. I'm not sure its going to be particularly informative no matter what you put.

I can't get any punctuation to work... Quotes, colons, hyphens, apostrophes. What do I do?!? This is the Education section, question 13 and 14.
