I'm still pretty new to the graduate application process so bear with me.
I am planning on applying to several Master's of Science in Biomedical Engineering Programs for the 2018 fall semester. I know that I want to do a thesis and there are several professors whose research I am interested in.
My question is, how do I go about getting involved with a particular professor's research? When I apply, am I chosen by a professor or do I choose a professor to research with?
I'm interested in one or two professors at each university that I'm applying to. Should I contact them and ask if they'll consider my application for their lab(s) or should I simply wait to see if I am accepted first?
