Undergraduate research position over the summer....

Currently I am a junior dual degree student in professional physics and ACS chemistry. I attend Lawrence Technological University. I would be very interested in an undergrad research position over the summer and was wondering what types of schools would be in my league. I have a 3.3 gpa but it will probably be around a 3.4 after the end of the Fall. Unfortunately, I have no other research experience. I know the chair of the natsci department would push to get me into a good program, but I want to know how good of a chance I have.

Would schools like MIT, Cornell, and UM Ann Arbor be feasible options, or should I be looking at lesser schools? Is the university I attend holding me back since it is somewhat lesser known nationally? It is very well known in the region, but not nationally.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
