Hey everyone, I'm wondering if any of you did the pre-doctoral summer internship at NIH. Ever since I heard about it, I've been dying to do it. I would LOVE the chance to research something about which I am passionate. Do you know how hard it is to get picked? I'm worried that if I ask for a research area I'm interested in that I might not get it--I'm thinking I should try to, instead, pick something that they might want to fill, even though I'm not really passionate about that research topic. What do you think? Do you know what, if anything, they are looking for? What the criteria are? Thanx in advance.
