closetgeek Posted January 19, 2011 Share Posted January 19, 2011 Over the summer, I participated in an REU at one of my safety schools. The research that I did turned it to be pretty good. I worked on it even once classes started, submitted my work to a conference, and my paper actually got accepted! Well my mentor reallllly wants me to go to the school. I don't really want to go at all, but my mentor was great and has helped me out so much during the grad school process that I feel that I should at least consider going. Anyways, he talked to the department head about our research, and he wants me to come to his lab and present my work. He also said he wants to convince me to come to the school! He's actually one of the top researchers in the field I am interested in, but I was at the school for an entire summer and decided that it really wasn't where I wanted to be for 4-6 years. Anyways, I'm really nervous about presenting my work...I don't even really know what is expected of me. The university is about 14 hours away...I really don't want to go up there to present my work because I don't want to go to the school and its kind of a hassle, but I feel like I should, and would feel bad if I didn't. Anyways, do you think its worth it? I feel kind of weird about the situation : Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
