whatdoido Posted March 31, 2011 Share Posted March 31, 2011 I did a forum search and didn't really come up with anything, so I thought I'd ask. I'm doing research for a Professor and I get her the work as quickly as I can and I think she's impressed with my fast turnover, but I doubt that will make her write a good recommendation. I've shot her some research ideas and she gave me positive feedback on 3 or 4 of them (she said that I should pursue them further). I'm not really sure what else I can possibly do to stand out. I'm helping her revise a paper (helping as in just gathering data) and I've thought about trying to do some independent analysis of her paper (which I don't have but I know the concept of) but I realize that given that I'm an undergrad. and shes a professional economist, I probably won't have anything to say that either doesn't make sense or she hasn't thought of already. I've told her that I'm reading Varian, but given that all the answers to the questions in Varian are online, I don't really have much to ask her about it. So my question is what did you guys do to stand out when you were an RA? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
