Hi, I was wondering if anyone has heard back from summer programs in fields other than math. (Math REUs already has its own thread.) I applied to: -Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) NREL and Argonne -Collaborative Undergraduate Research in Energy Program (CURE) at MassAmcrest -Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) at Stanford -REU Cornell Center for Materials Research -Berkeley Center of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems (COINS) Undergraduate Research Program -University of Maryland’s Materials Science and Engineering Center (UMD-MRSEC) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) -Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at MIT’s Materials Processing Center (MPC) I have only heard back from 3 of them so far COINS, CURE and Cornell's REU. (waitlisted, rejected, accepted-oh so happy!) Apparently there were a ridiculous number of applications this year. COINS had 170 applications for 10 spots and CURE had 200 applications for 10 spots. I didn't realize these programs had only like a 5% acceptance rate. Isn't this like 4x lower than grad school admissions? How is everyone else doing?
