    Writing Sample for RA Position

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi,

    So, there are a number of RA positions/pre-doctoral fellowships that require a writing sample to apply. However, some of these requests ask for samples restricted in length (e.g. < 5 pages). I was planning on submitting my undergrad thesis for such positions, so would it be best to just submit the first five pages of it? Most of the beginning is just lit review and Iím not sure how impressive thatíd be, but I also think itíd be confusing to submit another portion of the paper excluding the introduction. Any advice?

    I recommend to submit only the pages related to data analysis because that's what an RA does everyday.
