TESU LIB495 - No help, withdrawing from it. Thoughts?
#1
Hola! Like other people here I am not going to say who my "mentor" is for my TESU LIB495 capstone but I am not happy with how the course is going so far. Its been 30 days or so and I still have no clue as to what/how to write a thesis. My "mentor" has provided no samples nor clear instructions as to how to do the assignments. I am very frustrated since it has taken me more than a decade to finally get to this point and I am thinking about withdrawing from the course all together. I am a military retiree with a full time job and taking two other courses yet when I asked I did not received samples of what the sections are supposed to look like or any support. All I get everytime I ask is "read the syllabus". Well I have done that plenty of times and it is clear as mud. I really do not have time to become a thesis writer overnight. I say this because TESU should call it what it is, a fraking thesis! I think that a Capstone is not really necessary for a bachelor's let alone for someone with a career however it has become the law of the land. Just wanted to see what others might suggest I do but I am withdrawing from the capstone until I get more time to write a thesis.

I think withdrawing might be a good choice this time,

when I did my bsba capstone everyone was scrambling for the first case study, personally I finally got it when I just started writing. What I mean is I think what you are experiencing is normal, unfortunately you do not have a very supportive mentor

I’m curious tho, does this mentor has good reviews?

That was my fault as I did not look for reviews. I will do that for sure next time but I am not sure what reviews if any my mentor has as I believe its fairly new.

Sharing the mentor's name might be a good idea to help others out if they want to avoid a hands-off mentor who doesn't provide samples or assistance.

I think that you and I might be in the same course.  Same mentor.  I am having a similar experience.  I already know how to write a thesis, but am getting no grades or feedback at all.

I could really use a good example of a Literatue Review.  I have most of mine done, but just want some confirmation.
