Comments on March 1st, 2017 by Dr. Emily Copeland

Thesis Development: Mr. Edwards consistently displayed a commendable ability to develop and follow a thesis. His subjects of interests ranged from understanding conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to reforming the international refugee regime.

Mechanics of writing: Mr. Edwards writes well. There were occasional mistakes in grammar but these were of no major consequence.

Citations and style: On one occasion Mr. Edwards’ style was described as mechanical, but that was not apparent in his other works. In balance, another of his professors praised the flow and reader-friendly style of Mr. Edwards’ writing. A review of Mr. Edwards’ written products confirms consistent improvement, although not much was required, in his citations.

Substance: Mr. Edwards delivered high quality papers from the beginning through the end of the MDY program.

Overall Assessment: A proven and superior student, Mr. Edward’s skills are impressive and should serve him well in his future endeavors.
