The Graduate School announced it is sponsoring free Overleaf Pro accounts in January, 2016.Please inform me if you notice any differences between the Graduate School's or your school or department's specifications and what puthesis does. You won't need to “reinvent the wheel.” All formatting details are done automatically, you can concentrate on the content of your thesis instead of worrying about margins, typefaces, etc.APA6 style text citations and bibliographies can continue to be used, contact me if you have any problems.
