MENTORNET
June 1, 2010

I have mentored six or so students, most of them older foreign students. Unfortunately, only one was a woman --- and I'm proud to say she's doing wonderfully. Being a oldster (67) I feel my role is to help older students. There's a big difference between just out of undergraduate school and people returning in their 30, 40s and older. The mystifying thing is that the problems I encounter with students is the same regardless of age: they don't understand the academic game. That's the fun part for me --- helping them achieve their dreams.
