Scheduling Calculator

Need help scheduling the thesis project? Do you find yourself always playing catch-up with various thesis deadlines? This Scheduling Calculator from the Baylor University Libraries will help you develop a timeline for writing each chapter, or for any other writing assignment that you might have. The calculator works best if you use the calculator to develop a schedule for each chapter rather than for the entire thesis.
