I will be attending tufts this year,

I am planing to specialize and i have been adviced to get into a lab and start doing research my first year. Do any of you are doing research now and how did u get the professor to accept you to the lab?? Are there any professors more likely to take you in more than others? What is your imput in this????
Also what are other elements that they look for when evaluating your application for a residency?

good for you :thumbup: at least you're honest..

During my orientation, one of the guys in my group blatantly told our faculty tour guide that he told his interviewer that he was interested in research and the DDS/PhD program, but in reality hates research and had no intention of doing any. Pretty funny..

Talk about getting started on the wrong foot. :thumbdown: I am not sure about research. It will also be heavily defendant on time constraints.
