    Howdy.... If you want to stand out, then do something you absolutely love to do. If your cup of tea is research, then all the more power for you....

    Just today, I found out a fellow colleague left his band as a lead guitarist to pursue his career in medical school.... I'm not sure whether or not that came out during the medical school interview but that would be something that I'm sure would have made my colleague stand out.

    The point is do something you want to do and that will shine in your interview.... Good luck to you in your search for a professor to do research with.

    Just my two cents ;)
