How did all of you nonscience majors out there find research positions? Are some summer positions available to those with just the basic premed requirements (orgo and intro bio) and nothing more, or are most of those positions looking for people who are serious about hard sciences and have taken more classes than the intros in bio? Is non-hard science research still considered valuable in the minds of the adcoms? I'm a cognitive science major, and I think I would find research related to cognitive science and physiological psychology to be the most interesting. Side note--is a research-based thesis project (as is common within my major at my school) looked at as "research experience" even though it's a requirement for graduation? How about research classes? I took a research methods class incognitive science this semester, where we designed and carried out a study amongst the 10 members of our class (ie we all tested subjects and had a hand in design). Does abyone care about stuff like that? And on a side note...did any of you purely nonscience majors out there (ie majors in things where no research is done, like English)do any research at all?
