I'm currently an undergraduate double majoring in physics and math and hoping to go into theoretical physics. It seems to me that there is very little I can do now in terms of research on theoretical physics, simply because of the knowledge required (please correct me if I'm wrong). I can get research opportunities in experimental physics however. In terms of getting into a good graduate program, does this kind of research really matter or is my time better spent on just learning as much as I can so I can do actual theoretical research sooner? I should note that I spent over a year already working in a lab, and will get a published paper out of it, so my resume wont be just courses taken. I'm asking if I should go look for more research.
