research helps?

<p>i did research at UT Southwestern for 10wks. No pay also :. Is it very important to get published?</p>

<p>Research helps, published or not. If you are a senior, it's probably too late to worry about publishing it. If you are a junior, you could try to enter some science competitions (if it was science resarch, and you have some results). It is very unusual, even for a seasoned researcher, to produce anything publishable in 10 weeks. No one will expect you to have a paper in Science by the time you are applying to college.</p>
