Hi All. I was pretty idiotic and waited until last minute to prepare my NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Proposal. In under 2-weeks time, I 'slapped together' my application, figuring that even if I didn't win, I would at least obtain valuable feedback. I just submitted it. The problem is, I am not sure that my proposal is entirely plausible, since I didn't have the time to read extensive literature on the subject. Now I am wondering if a mediocre GRFP application could hurt my chances of graduate school admission.
