This prof is such a JERK!

<p>So in August I contacted a prof about volunteering in his lab. He said to come meet with him and I did, and we had everything worked out. I needed a permission letter thing to get the position so I waited forever for that. I never got it and his office assistant told me I was supposed to wait for another one. Last week I asked him about it. Today he replied and said that he's not taking me in his lab anymore. ***???? I don't get it. I hate this guy. I'm just going to give up research in high school, I don't think it's worth it. My local university SUCKS and so do all the profs. :/</p>

<p>You'll meet those kinds of people in reality. I got ignored a couple times when I contacted professors, but a few bad apples doesn't mean that the whole basket's rotten (or however the saying goes). Just pick yourself up and try another professor. You also need to remember that the professor doesn't actually need you; it's the other way around. If this little obstacle is too much, perhaps you should look into another field.</p>

<p>Ahaha. Hey, at least your guy got back to you! My guy didn't respond to any of my calls or emails.</p>
