Hi everyone, Next week I will be meeting one-on-one with a professor to discuss physics research, in hopes of getting involved in some capacity. I have never had this experience before and I am bit unsure of what I should expect, what I should prepare for, what I should bring etc. Despite my excitement for potentially engaging in research, I am very nervous. Will the professor ask me in-depth questions about the materiel to gauge my abilities? Probe my resumé? Or will the questions be more along the lines of "why are you interested in research" and "what fascinates you about this topic"? Will he do most of the talking/explaining, or will I? Should I even bring a CV and transcript if he has not requested them? How long will the session last? What should I wear? How formal will the atmosphere be? etc If anyone who was met with a prof (or, even better, anyone who is a prof who has met with students) in a similar context could share some insight, I would appreciate it extremely. Thank you!
