Research internships

<p>Have any of you been to one of these? I am applying to some from UCs but I think I'll get a better chance at smaller state colleges.</p>

<p>What is it like? From what I have read, I think I'd be way in over my head. Nano-technical-biological ultra theory thing going on in 10 weeks!?? I need a crash course on what would be going on. My community college has just been teaching me general calculus based physics and very ordinary differential equations. Should I apply?</p>

<p>If you don't know what I am talking about, it is for basically any sophomore going into junior year. They show what grad school is like. They have grad students and seminars. Stipends are like 3-5k. Food housing travel depending on school.</p>

<p>My sister did CURE at CSU LA. No housing but good pay. I know it's a lot of work. No vacation. But I'm still lost. I'm not a bio major so I won't apply for the same internship. She'd some light please.</p>
