College Student/Pre-meds: Here’s a useful Tip!
While growing up, I had always wished I had an older sibling to look up to; one that would serve as a mentor. Therefore, I have a responsibility to direct and push my siblings towards achieving success.As I prepare to graduate from college in May, I will be writing posts about how to succeed and things I was never told. This might not apply to everyone (but international students studying in the US would definitely find it useful). Here’s my “older sibling-advice” to young college students.
"You can e-mail professors requesting to join their lab"
If you that student that’s currently searching for a research position in your campus or at other institutions; but can’t get around writing that powerful e-mail, then here’s a link that would help you.
Remember that when you hit “send”; there are only two worse scenarios
(i) You’ll get a response with “NO I HAVE NO POSITION”
(ii) You might not get any response at all.
However, DON’T GIVE UP!!! A “NO” would not kill you….
