How much of a procrastinator are you?

If you were assigned a huge research paper for work or school, that is about 12 pages long and has a 20 minute accompanying oral presentation, when would you start it? How long on average would a task this large take you?

Voted: other.

I'd probably start it in early September, forget it and start working on it again around late October, if not November 1.

Same deal, I'd probably start it early, then forget about it and finish it on the night of the 6th.

I'd probably give myself a few days. 1 day for research, and 2 days for preparing the oral and writing the paper.

I take pride in being a professional crastinator, but we're talking about some pretty huge project here. If it were just the 12-page paper I might do it in a hurry the last few days (depends a lot on the topic and difficulty of the paper), but the oral presentation makes it different. As it is, I'd probably start on the 1st or 2nd, maybe even on the 3rd.

Not that I'm bragging, because it's not something to be proud of, but I'm starting at 4:44pm. It's due at 8:30am. All nighter for Adam.

Usually in such situations when I was in school, I'd start my research a day or two before the paper was due, and get around to writing the paper a few days later. Almost all of my assignments were late being passed in.

Start it late September, do nothing for about a month, do a bit each day at the end of October/start of November, then do most of it November 6.

Depends on the topic, and if that 12 pages is single or double spaced pages. 12 pages double spaced on a topic I'm good at and that has ample resources available I might start the night before, but 12 pages single spaced on a tougher topic I'd probably start about a week before. I'd probably wing the presentation with no preparation other than having done the paper because I'm pretty good at speaking on the spot and I have a really good memory. I'd probably just write down key figures so I didn't get them wrong and then make up the rest as I go.

I haven't had to do 12 pages yet this year, but I've done two 8 page philosophy papers (on Descartes and Hume, respectively) both the night before. Each took me about three to four hours. I got an A- on the first, and I haven't gotten my grade for the second one yet.

What's the topic of this paper?

I'm doing it on analyzing and preventing wrongful convictions in CDN law.

Enough research required :|

It's APA format as well :|

I'd start it mid-late October, or at least start researching it then. I'd begin writing on the 1st most likely, considering I am a fairly good essayist and can usually bullshit my way to 12 pages easily enough.

This is coming from someone who's getting tested on 30 pages of material tomorrow, who hasn't even opened the book to start it yet...

I'd go for late October. Do some research, get some done before Halloween, finish it after, hand it in. Needless to say, I've only done the first thing on that list for a Nov 17th exam I have to do.
