Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,
I was recently accepted into the LIGO REU at Caltech and was wondering if anyone here had any experience with the program? If so, could you provide a brief rundown of your summer experience? Thanks so much!

I don't know what the Caltech ones were like, but I knew plenty of people who had REUs at the UWM LIGO Scientific Collaboration group. Most of them were doing coding for research which involved inspiral analysis, signal rejection criteria, testing waveforms, etc.

Can't say much more about Caltech specifically, sorry.
