Hi, I just found this board and though I'd ask a question if you all don't mind. This might be helpful to other rising Freshmen also. I'll be a frosh at Tulane and next year, and I was just wondering what kind of activities, etc. I should be starting this year to prepare for applying to MSTP programs in a couple of years. I know research is a must, but I've heard it is difficult for freshmen to find meaningful research positions, is this true? Any other ideas would be very helpful, thanks!
