  • More to this than I realized!  I remember, a long time ago, being coached for my "A" exam (or oral qualifying exam) by a fellow student who understood that "taking up space" (although not in a "feet on the desk" posture!) as opposed to getting small would make you seem more confident. My exam went well, and I think I did actually feel more confident and less stressed because of my posture. I will pass the information from the video on to those in my lab.  Thanks, Gail!
