Are any other grad applicants finding it hard to concentrate on school work? I am.
I have a lab report due on Monday. This is for a p-chem lab where the focus is less on actual lab-work and more on data & error analysis. For our “short reports” we spend maybe five hours doing the actual experiment and then something like 15 hours writing it up. Ugh.
I also have data from this same class which is going to be used for a “long report”, e.g. stuff written up a la ACS journal article. This is due not long after my “grand tour” (see last post) so I really need to get cracking on it soon!
Luckily the workload in my bioinformatics class has eased up. Still, I have a lot to do, and I can’t focus. What a pain!
I will be glad when the decision is MADE and I can stop worrying about where I’m going to spend the next five years. Though it occurs to me that once I’ve made my choice, I will have to start worrying about things like moving a family of six to a new locale…*groan*
