child of 2 Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 I've been doing research for a professor for more than 2 years. But she is a very busy professor, and the project I'm working on has progressed very slowly. Even though I was moved to a new project, I find it pathetic that after 2 years, I still haven't produced any results that are of any significance. I feel almost afraid to ask her for a LOR in the future, because looking back, I've done NOthing to impress her as an independent researcher, and this will probably hurt me. Another thing that I've always wondered is that almost all undergrad research assistants report to some sort of middleman, who in turn reports to the professor. With this relationship, the professor can't really get to know the undergrad unless I visit her office hours a lot with questions from literature or something. What are some good ways to let the professor get to know you more? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
