Here is a short conversation between a man and a woman, and I just wonder what "project" could probably mean? Does it mean paper or something else?
M: Hi, Melissa, how’s your project going? Have you thought about going to graduate school? Perhaps you can get into Harvard.
W: Everything is coming along really well. I’ve been thinking about graduate school. But I’ll talk to my tutor Dr. Gauthier first and see what she thinks.
