The professors were available to help out with research and were as hands-on or hands-off as needed. The research experience was greater than I thought it would be and offered me skills and applications that will be beneficial post-graduation.
What I wish was different
I would recommend anyone considering this program to take the chance. Although it is still school over the summer, it is a completely different experience and I found it to be a lot more enjoyable. The schedule is completely flexible, and the end goals are what you want them to be, so you can get out as much, if not more, than you put in.
