Should I do work in an experimental physics lab or summer internship?

  1. Jun 13, 2013 #1
    Hey PF, quick question for you guys. I got offers (on the same day!) to work with a professor at my college (1.5 hours away from home), paid, to do some experimental work. I also was offered an internship at the Naval Undersea warfare center in Newport, RI (~40 minutes from home). I will be working with the professor this coming fall and am really leaning towards the internship at the Navy base. I just wanted to make sure I wasnt screwing up my decision! The professor is great, however I think it would look better to do this internship and then work with him in the fall rather than just starting earlier. Thanks for your opinions guys, this was a happy day for me!
