Hi, as you can see from my signature, I got no volunteer hours and Research experience. I volunteered when i was in high school, but i belive they don't count that. I applied at library and hospital but they are not calling me back and i m having difficult time having a chance of doing some volunteer hours. is there any easy way of doing some volunteer work? I tutor students on many different subjects for free and I wonder if it counts too. otherwise, where do you guys go to volunteer? is it just me or does everyone have trouble finding volunteer work? and what really is this research experience? i believe it's not research paper you write in english class or science class, or is it? some people say they come from schools with professors who do a lot of research and students just follow them for some reason. Do i have to come from such schools that specifically do some research? or where and how can i get this chance of doing research?
