I am contemplating taking a research position at a very prestigious university this summer. The only problem is that I will not be getting paid. I kind of need money for the school year for various luxuries/necessities, so I'm not sure if its worth working 5 days a week for nothing. And, I highly doubt I will get anything published considering I will only be there for 3 months. Any thoughts? I am extremely interested in this certain area of research, but my parents don't give me any money over the school year, so I'm not sure. There is also good potential for a very solid letter of recommendation. If I do not take this job, I have another high-paying job waiting, but its not medical related, nor am I particulary interested in it.
