I am currently a junior dual major in ACS chemistry and professional physics and I am intererested in picking up an undergraduate research position in the summer. I am just curious what types of positions are in my league. I have a 3.3 GPA, which is kinda weak, but I hope to bring it up to around a 3.4 by the end of the Fall semester. I attend Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI and currently have no research experience. Would crazy schools like MIT and Cornell be completely out of my league? What about schools like UM ann arbor or Indiana University? The chair of the natural sciences program said he'd push hard to get me into a good program, and kept mentioning Indiana University, and he also said he could probably get me into a school like Hope College, which has an excellent undergraduate research program involving the interface between chem and physics. In fact, Hope was ranked number 4 in the country for undergrad research a couple years ago, ranked among schools like MIT, and UM. The chair of the natsci program told me he was the Ph.D advisor of the current head of the research program at Hope, so my chances of getting a spot there are pretty good I guess. I would like to get into research that is close to the interface between chemistry and physics. Any guidance would be appreciated.
