Graduate Research, How to find right group

  1. Feb 11, 2008 #1
    Hi, I'm invited to visit few schools for graduate study. I have pretty good idea about what research I want to do so during my visit, my main concern would be to check out the lab that does the research I'm interested and specifically figure out whether or not they have funding to cover incoming graduate student.

    How do you guys usually do that? Do you just ask straight out whether or not if you have money to support a student?

    Also, does anybody here have experience of getting into a popular/competitive lab? I fear the research group I want to join is too popular among us candidates. I want to know how you tackle this type of situation and eventually won the heart of professor to secure your position there. Any tip or story of yours would be great! Thanks
