I have been given the opportunity to do research this summer. However, since I am an undergraduate, I will not be paid. I'm not going to be starving, so I don't NEED to work, but it's nice to have money. So, if I do research this summer (and possibly the rest of the time I am an undergrad), will this look good when I apply to grad school? I am an EE, btw. I am looking to go to grad school for a masters degree, but I will most likely go to industry after. Will research look good on my application to graduate schools, or should I just work my normal job? How good does it look? Thanks. BTW - the research is in the field (or similar) that I'd like to persue on the graduate level.
