Physics related interniships for a student
I am wondering what you would recommend to an aspiring physics student as far as getting an internship (orange county,CA). No need to be location specific but if anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. I plan on applying to UCSD as a transferee and Ive read that it is quite difficult to get into. Seeing as I will probably only have around a GPA of 3.5 or 3.6 by the time I apply I gotta pump up my "resume". Where would one start to look for an internship that is physics related?
Also, say that you started out your education rough and did not do so well for the first few semester at a community college (like F's and 3-4 W's) but then you bounce back and get straight A's for the last 3 semesters in hard classes. Do you think UCSD would still accept that person given that those bad semesters were the product of a traumatic event such as a parent passing away.

Most internships fall under the REU category (research experience for undergrads) but those deadlines have passed, and I don't know if you can apply for one from a community college anyway. At this point, your best bet is to find someone willing to take you on for the summer without a formal program. Try talking to your professors to see if they have any possible contacts for you.
