1) While I am aware that RSI is going to be really intellectually stimulating(and by that virtue, in a way, extremely exciting and fun), but would you describe it as an enjoyable experience, not simply a valuable one?
2) For Bio Rickoids: In my past research getting results for experiments often takes far more than a month to conduct meaningful research. How do you and and your mentor manage the seemingly difficult time constraint?
3) How much time do you have that is not schedules, excluding mentor research time?
Oh also, do I give any input as to who ends up as my mentor/what lab I work in. If that was vague, what I mean is will RSI tell me "here is your mentor/lab go do a research project" or will they say "here are some possibilities, which do you like best?"
And how much money should I bring(assuming monetary constraints aren't much of an issue)
With our research, do people usually just get assigned the topic they listed first on the application? Do some get the second topic they listed? How do people end up coming up with a research topic?
If you are accepted to and attend RSI, do you have a good chance of being able to get accepted into MIT / other top universities for college? I read that MIT accepts 1000 people or about that many as freshmen, and that gave me courage... :-) I have always been worried about getting accepted into a good college, as well as paying for college.
I have a question about research as well. From past research experience, I know it can take me more than 6 weeks to come with the research question in of itself because of the indepth research involved. I'm afraid that I won't know enough about my topic of research, especially if it something completely new. How has that worked our for you past rickoids? In addition, when we give the presentation on the last days of RSI, is our research expected to be completed? I'm a bit skeptical about my ability to do a complete project within such a short time frame
you get some outrageous amount of Techcash, like $740 value
I bet some kids went to bed at bedcheck (which was at 11)
