Main Question or Discussion Point

I go to a big school with lots of physics research available. I started in a group at the beginning of this year, and I'm a junior and have good grades. From looking on different REU program websites it seems like a lot of them seem to want people with limited access to research at their school. Since I am at a research school and am currently involved in research do I have much of a chance of getting in to any REU's?

If you are already involved in research, why do you specifically want an REU?

It wouldn't hurt to apply to one or 10 you're interested in.

Yes you have a fine chance. In fact, you may even have a better chance if some of your letters of recommendation are coming from people you research with saying what a good researcher you are. I know quite a few people who have done multiple REUs and also research at their home university, so you should definitely apply.
