Nick Repak, National Director of Grad Resources, has started a weekly email
letter to those who have requested E-Mentor assistance. His initial topics
have included Time Management, Prof/Grad Relationships, Financial Pressures,
and other issues grad students face. He will also respond to topics/issues
you feel are pertinent to a majority of grad students, and would greatly
appreciate your feedback and suggestions. If there are specific issues that
require personal responses he will attempt to answers these personally or
put you in contact with someone who can.

I wanted to thank you for your timely help and everything.
I especially want to thank George who helped me; and with so much patience. Believe me when I say he was patient. He was always there when I needed suggestions and was very prompt too. I do not have words to express appreciation for his work. He never gave up on me like the others.
My proposal got accepted and I am almost done with my analysis. I will graduate by August 2008.
I could not think of a better way to acknowledge his efforts and patience.
You are doing a great job helping students like us who need this sort of help.
Thank you once again. You were right. George is a very good mentor. I wished I had him before I had graduated.
I might continue to seek his help off and on.
