Abi’s Advice – Research Opportunities Can Help You Find Your Future

If you’re interested in graduate school or just interested in a particular field, involve yourself with research. Working in a lab, making connections within your field, and developing your own research ideas will put you on the path to success. I found what I wanted to do after my undergrad from working in a research lab on campus. While the classes you take still matter, most often programs will weigh your research experience and motivation for your field over a grade you received in one course!
