Recently I have been rejected by nearly every institution/university I applied to, this summer. I do have a previous experience "summer internship" from last year. Also, I don't think I am that much bad to be rejected by that much handful of institutions. Anyway, I am not complaining. I am still determinant that I must take work experience this summer. But its too late for summer applications right now. Is is okay if I contacted professors personally asking for internship or volunteer!? What is your advice?
