Quick Question,

I've been offered a job working for someone on the admissions committee of my undergrad school, the question is would doing research under this person outweigh doing research that could possibly get me published (I could get published doing research under the ad-com, but it prob wont happen)? The only hitch in the whole thing is the college I go to only allows in-state applicants, so is it still a great opportunity?

Do research that you WANT to do. Don't worry about who you're doing it for (as long as it's a Dr. of some kind and it's academic) and don't worry about getting published as an undergrad. There's too many issues that keep undergrads from publishing anyways, that it's something that's not guaranteed in any lab.

If you enjoy it, you will be more productive, you will be able to talk more intelligently about it, etc... These are all more important in the long run.
