I'm a rising sophomore at my school, USciences. My schedule for next year affords me the opportunity to get an on-campus job. However, I don't qualify for work study. I wanted to choose between either being a tutor at my school's writing center or being a research assistant for the PT department. The latter is only available for work-study students.
Which job should I go for? How can I apply for being a research assistant without being on work study?
