Basically my question is, next semester I'll be a senior & don't have any undergraduate research, & I'm wondering if I should do research even if I'm not interested in the subject. At the college I go to, they are doing some mathematical research in string theory, & I never particularly cared for the subject. It seems like there is a lot of learn before I can even begin contemplating any possible computations. So is it worth it, if that is possibly the only undergrad research I might get? I applied to some REU's for the summer, but I'll just have to wait & see about getting into them. I hope to go to grad school, hopefully in the field of astrophysics, but we'll have to see being that I come from a small school.
