Around 11am today, I met with my professor and we discussed my thesis for my second paper. This paper is centered around William’s text Strategic Diversity Leadership. I have to pick a University’s strategic diversity plan and analyze it according to William’s text. I already had a paragraph of the paper completed before the meeting, but that is it so far.
During the meeting, we discussed the text, the diversity plan that I picked, and the University. He told me that the plan is rather intensive and thinks it maybe a good idea if I narrow my it down to one or two goals to analyze in the plan. We talked about a plan of attack and what sources might be good to look into. I took some notes on our conversation. I am so ready for this paper to behind me. I am not looking forward to sitting down and writing it. We also chatted about my oral presentation that I am due to present. My oral presentation is scheduled the same day as the paper. I know there is no possible way to get an extension without my grade suffering, so let the games begin. Overall, my meeting lasted a half hour. I have a better understanding of the second paper, and needed to get it done.
On my way back to the office, I ran into class mate from Max’s class. He asked me what I got on the first paper. I said, a B+. I asked what he got, and he said an A-. I am convinced he gives part-time student’s B+. As I was about to comment, Max walked by. He said, you didn’t make it very far. I said, I know right. I watched him go down the escalator. I looked back at Steven. He said a few other girls in the class that are part-time students got a B+ too I said, “well one of the Julia’s got an A- and she is a part-time student. I do remember Max saying in class that there isn’t much difference in grad school, when it comes to a B+ and A-. I think this guy was trying to stir the pot. I was hearing so many things about this professor. There are so many rumors. When I got back to my office, I did some requests and the day went by pretty quickly. Nothing much else to report.
