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. 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? Will taking one semester of research hurt my chances when I'm applying to med schools? I've probably worked 20-25 hours every week this summer so I have a decent about of research hours accumulated already.
