    Hi,
    I have been trying to find a research mentor for next semester. I emailed a few professors to see if I could meet with them and a few have responded (I am meeting with one tomorrow). I realize that I have to prepare myself by reading more about the person's research and having genuine questions about his/her work, but do I need to bring anything else with me? I already sent my resume with the original email. Do I need to bring a notebook or something to take notes?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I'd take in a hard copy of the resume too. Just in case they haven't printed it out or what not. It makes you look more prepared and thoughtful :)

    I brought my unofficial transcript, besides a hard copy of my CV, and some printed copies of the most interesting of the PIs papers I'd read (with questions written in the margins).
