Day 1: Data Input

spent about 5 or so hours putting some demographic data into an excel spreadsheet and then copying and pasting the data to an SPSS data sheet. went through each athlete questionnaire (256 total ) just putting in numbers and actually felt a sense of pride doing so. after starting this project in the winter of 2006 and finally getting on the computer again to get the project close to finished started to feel good.

things will really feel good when the result of winning the undergraduate poster presentation at the nata convention is set.

data analysis begins!

finally...data analysis for my concussion research is on the table! downloaded a trial period of SPSS 17.0 which should suffice for data entry until the december 1 deadline for nata abstract submission.

today i will just be entering in demographic data and once i have a better idea of how to input data for all of the questionnaire responses then i can get doing that.

wish me luck!

application out!

after "making the switch" to going back to sports medicine studies I can really say I am quite excited to get things(studies) started. i finally got all my application materials electronically submitted to the university of delaware just over the weekend. i am actually waiting for two profs to turn in letters of recommendation and then the application will be 100% complete.

UD sounds like a good place to be as there is one professor who is actively participating in studies in relation to concussion in sports. i spoke with him a few weeks ago and he was quite enthusiastic about getting me on board to participate in graduate studies and to contribute to research. he also spoke of the possibility to continue doctoral studies at UD. at this point i wouldnt mind going through doctoral studies, especially if it is a place that will support my interest in concussion research.

my current interest with concussions is within the sport of taekwondo. as an olympic sport and one that is ever growing, i see it as a great avenue for continued research.

looking forward to the admission committee results. program starts in february 2009.
