Today in thesis I updated my college resume as well as talked to Gerardo about sending teacher recommendation letters to schools. After finishing that, I worked on my two supplements for TCU and brainstormed on what to write for my four University of California supplements. Finally, I created an account and submitted my initial application for the National Eagle Scout Association scholarships on their website.

Today in thesis I looked over the annotated bibliography assignments in classroom and began working on it. I finished my working bibliography with the sources I already had, but I still need to find some more sources to get to the 15 minimum. Also, next time I will begin writing my annotations for each bibliography entry.

Today in thesis I talked to Ms. Marberry about questions I had on my Michigan State application and University of Texas at Austin application. I ultimately called both schools' admissions offices because neither Ms. Marberry or I knew the answers. I finished my Michigan State application and will submit it when I get home tonight. I also worked on my UT Austin application, finishing my extracurricular activity, awards, honors, and community service sections.

Today thesis was a college day. As a result, I worked primarily on my essays and supplements for my October 15th deadlines (UT, A&M, and Michigan State). I drafted a completely new supplement as well as edited the four other ones I had already written. Additionally, I edited my two essays based on suggestions Mr. Templet gave me today at lunch. Finally, I completed the personal information sections on the Apply Texas application, something that took way more time than I thought it would.

Today in thesis I shopped for 3-foot, anatomical skeletons on eBay (finding one that costs $65), compiled the sources that I have used so far into a working bibliography, and researched how much it would cost to make an ecorche out of clay or play-doh. After doing my research, I concluded that it wouldn't be overly expensive, but that it would be extremely heavy to use either of those materials, I'm going to experiment with some recycled material such as cardboard and newspapers to see if I can use them for my model.

Today in thesis I drafted a supplement for my University of Texas at Austin application. In addition to writing this, I edited a supplement that I had previously finished and created a spreadsheet that organized my college choices, application due dates, and the way that I am applying to them. Finally, I began working on my Texas A&M application on the Apply Texas website.
