In looking at other areas of research at my school, I see a lot of other really interesting things. I am only just now taking Physics I, so I have tons of time to find what I find most interesting and would eventually want to study in graduate school.

My question is, would it be out of line, or maybe too early, to email the professors in different research areas and ask if I could meet with them to learn about what they study and pick their brain a bit? For example, I think I would be really interested in Mathematical Physics, and we have a couple here, but the description on their page is a little vague (for example, "Computer Algebra Systems in Differential Geometry"). They all sound very interesting and I just would like to know what their days look like doing these things, and the applications that they have, etc. I think it would also be good to meet them, and show my face a bit so I could get to know the professors in my department.
