Jim McGinley was a wonderful resource and instrumental in my dissertation proposal. I have some familiarity with the statistical methods I hoped to perform, and Jim quickly calibrated to my current level and needs. His natural curiosity and desire to help are huge assets, and he made great recommendations based on my specific research questions and goals for the project. Perhaps most importantly, he was incredibly responsive to my concerns and questions, and not at all intimidating. He always made sure to follow up to see if I had any issues, and was professional and competent. Jim really cared about the final research project, and I can’t express my recommendation strongly enough!
