I want to go to Graduate School and get my Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. I am an Engineering Physics Major and I have only one more year until I finish my Undergraduate degree. I will be applying to graduate schools in December 2008. I would love to go to University of Michigan, but it's hard to get in there. A problem I have is that I have no relevant research or work experience in the field. Do you think I could work on something during the months of August to November that would give me experience and increase my chances of getting into grad school? I tried really hard to get an internship but recruiters don't even bother to consider someone with an Engineering Physics Major, they just look for ME and EE. I have an overall GPA of 3.73, and I am studying very hard for the GRE which I will take in August.
