Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar
I am a research student from April,2014. Although I do not know the detail of Ogawa seminar, before I joined, I refer to the large number of background information of Ogawa seminar via the internet. In the end I chose Ogawa seminar because this seminar gives us an international atmosphere, through this process I can learn from different students of different views. In my opinion, the most important thing is not what you have learned, but a new way of thinking.
