Hi all, I've applied to quite a few REU's for this summer, but I'm not too confident I'm actually going to get into one because my professor keeps telling me they are quite competitive, and that it's not unusual for people to get rejected from all of them. I've applied to: UChicago UCDavis UNLV UCLA Colorado USeattle Washington Notre Dame (after deadline) Duke/TUNL Kansas State (after deadline) Has anyone heard back from any of these yet? And I've also applied for the Lee Teng internship at Fermi and a research assistant at Argonne. I didn't know all of the national labs had internships until my professor told me, but by then the deadlines had all passed. I'm currently studying abroad in the UK, so I wouldn't be opposed to finding a summer internship here. What I really want to do is research for high energy (preferably nuclear) physics. Does anyone know of anything else or anywhere else I can apply to for something like this that wouldn't have had the deadline passed already? I have a 3.407/4.0 cumulative GPA and a 3.45/4.0 STEM gpa. I have some CS experience (2 semesters C++, 1 semester Java), and I quite enjoy programming. Junior year undergrad, Applied Physics. Female. I have no research experience (why I really need something for this summer since I want to attend graduate school.) I have tried some internet searches, and I asked my internship office at my home school back in the States for some help, but they told me just to google physics internships. If anyone has anything else they can offer, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!
