It was interesting to hear Luis Maira's perspective on the "No" campaign. It was very eye opening

I attended last Thursday’s “Boot Camp” and was relieved/elated to first meet others who too were in the same “boat” as I, and struggling to narrow their research.

Both Kenya and Pat were open for discussion and guidance - this was valuable class time of AP structure, ideas (samples of other students completed papers) etc.
I believe Kenya stated to the class on Thursday that of the students enrolled in AP the success rate (completion of paper) is only about 60%. WOW, a bit alarming knowing that 100% who enroll in Advanced Project have already completed all other competencies with the exception of Summit Seminar. A measure that these students are capable of managing their academic path and completing AP but why 40% who do not complete.

Early on in my path at DePaul, the Library was introduced as a valuable resource for empirical data and citation guidelines as well as taking advantage of the opportunities at the Writing Center. . Many students know right out of the “gate” what their focus content will encompass and hit the finish line without any major delays. However, other students, maybe to the 40% who don’t finish, need some additional face-to-face structured class time of examples of other completed papers, and guidance of staying focused when review of literature can often lead research other directions.

I feel this Boot Camp is just as valuable and should be incorporated as part of a class time at the beginning of a session/quarter (and throughout the year as needed) similar to that of the Library and the Writing Center introductions.
