Poster conference

  1. Sep 20, 2010 #1
    I have a poster conference coming up in two weeks and I am still deciding if i should go or not.

    First of all, i haven't really begun the poster because i've been traveling in the east coast a lot helping my family move. Secondly, the conference would mean that I would miss out on a whole week of class!

    how much of a grad school booster is this national poster conference? and will i be missing out if i don't attend?

    thanks.

    I wouldn't do it for the CV, but I would for the experience. It's fun to go along, see some talks, and have a chat with other people that are interested in the same things as you. If you aren't that bothered for the experience, then I would just leave it.
