Polishing your Application: an Interactive Workshop

After working on an application for weeks or months, it can be scary to finally turn it in. Join us for an interactive workshop about the art of feedback, revising and polishing your application, and how to know when you’re done. We’ll go over strategies together and then take 20-30 minutes to meet with peers in small groups and swap feedback on whatever you’re working on right now.
