anthroflea Posted January 5, 2014 Share Posted January 5, 2014 I'm sorry if this has been discussed already. I couldn't find anything though. I still have two PhD applications to finish up. One of them asks for a relatively short writing sample. The paricular POI does research in a similar area as I did for my MA thesis. So I am planning on submiting a few pages of my thesis. On the bottom of the last page I put down my thesis itself as the source (it's been published by the university). Unfortunately though, there are a looooot of people I am citing just in the short little excerpt. Now I wonder whether I need to add a works cited page? The thing is that the works cited page might end up being pretty long.So it would cut down on the space I have for actual text. I am tempted to just leave out the works cited. My reasoning is that it is just an excerpt from my thesis which I am citing. I am nervous about it though. Since this is a writing sample, I also don't want to "undercite" and seem like I don't know what I'm doing. Has anybody else run into a similar problem? Any suggestions?
