So I was planning on getting into research next year for my Undergrad in Physics and so I self studied, trying to get ahead in my classes. I talked to my counciler about it and she told me to just talk to one of the professors. During Mid-Semester I talked to my quantum professor as well as my EM professor about either being advised or working for them. My quantum professor said he was glad that I was interested in his research and told me that he'd give me material over the summer to read over given that I went back to him towards the end of the semester. My EM professor on the other end gave me an article that he published and told me to understand it and talk to him a number of weeks later. Needless to say, I did my research and understood the published paper my EM teacher gave me, but now he won't even let me talk to him about it. He automatically wrote me off as incompetent and won't believe that I understand it, which I really do. My quantum teacher on the other hand wrote back to me declaring that doesn't even want to advise/ guide me for research; apparently he found 3 other students he'd rather employ/help next year. So I emailed my adviser about finding other professors and now she won't even respond to me. Its not like I'm a bad student, I got A's on all the hw in EM turning out with a B+ in the class and I also received a B in Quantum. How can I get into research? I keep asking around and it's like no one wants anything to do with me. I hate this so much, it's rather depressing; I would make a better researcher than student, thats just who I am.
