So here is my dilemma. I have been taking research as a class this past summer and according to my lab coordinators, who I work with on a daily basis, Im doing A worthy work. However in a lab meeting with my research professor last week, he decided that I will receive either a B+/A- in the class because Im not being innovative enough and looking deeper into the project. Im not sure what either of those things mean and I do not know how he has decided my grade (last weeks lab meeting was the first time hes been in the lab all summer). Admittedly my experiments have not been going as planned, but thats not my fault as my lab coordinators attempted the same experiments and are getting the same results. Getting a B+/A- in the course will actually hurt my average rather than help it. After discussing it over with my lab coordinators, they talked to my professor to get me an A- in the class. However another A- will hurt my GPA in the future so so I do not know if I should continue on with research in the fall. Any advice on whether or not I should continue on with it? For reference, next fall I will be taking 3 relatively hard science classes and studying for the MCATs. Currently Im working about 20-25 hours a week in the lab and will probably continue working similar hours in the fall.
