    Hi guys,

    my thesis is due in July and I don't know, how I will make it...
    I don't like the professor I am working with, I don't like my topic and I am going crazy soon.

    Help me.

    Assassinate the professor and work with his/her replacement.

    Alternatively, convince him/her to retire to a Pakistani McMansion.

    Thanks for the reply.
    The problem is that I can neither change the professor nor the topic.

    You've just got to get it done, and well enough to pass. A pass is all you need. Sounds like it's too late to change profs or topics, so get off your ass and force yourself to get through it. You've come too far to screw things up now.

    I'm usually all about finding something you like in every assignment, but sometimes, you just have to get it done. Just man up and do it -- it's just research and writing, even if you curse at your prof the whole time, just do it (and get yourself somewhere the heck away from the internet).

    What major are you? I have to bullshit most of my data and I won 2nd place within my major. Knowing statistics and have a strong command of SAS help though. The rest is presentation. No one reads your report other than your adviser. And do invite everyone you know from your dorm; give them prepared questions to ask you, so you don't get thrown off guard. This is how you engineer thesis success. You'd have to do it again for your dissertation or more advanced degrees down the road anyways.

    haha, I've read that. I've also used people to revise my papers as well. Worth it i think, i am not a writer i am a math person.

    we aren't all born with the ability to be word-smiths, i will beat your ass with math though.

    Man, sack up! write your paper and take it someone in the writing lab and have them review it. This is up to you.
