Hi there, I imagine the answer to my question (When should I start trying to get in on some undergrad research opportunities?) is, "As soon as possible." That being said, when do most students majoring in Physics normally begin? At what point are they well-informed enough, on both the basics of the field and the content covered by the various sub-fields, to make that decision? Due to schedule constraints I think I would only be able to do research over the summers, beginning with the equivalent of my sophomore summer in the program. That would mean research over three summers; if I have my eye on grad school (I do) is that insufficient? Should I try to shoehorn research into other semesters? Am I even making any sense, or are my questions based on completely erroneous assumptions?
