Hello, I am a sophomore physics and mathematics double major, and I plan to attend graduate school for physics with a concentration in biophysics, or just biophysics. However, this is subject to change, as I find a lot of areas of physics interesting. I was recently accepted to two REU programs and I cannot choose between them. My main focus is honestly what will give me the biggest benefit for getting accepted to my top choice graduate schools (whatever they might be when I decide). Both programs are equally interesting to me otherwise. Here are the pros of each: REU 1: -It's international, either in Japan or the Netherlands (the program hasn't place me yet). -I will be working with biophysics and nanotechnology, which is consistent with what I researched last summer (and I've heard consistency is a plus when applying for grad school and NSF grants). REU 2: -Research is in high-energy/accelerator/particle physics, which I am also really interested in, but haven't had experience with before (that's fine, but again with the idea of "consistency") -The REU is at Cornell University, which I am DEFINITELY considering applying to for graduate school, so I would really love to get to know the professors and be familiar with their research. I would greatly appreciate any advice, so thank you very much in advance!
