Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Originally just looking for an internship to occupy my time during my Junior year summer, I emailed a ton of doctors, professors, hospitals, etc. and sent my resumé every which way in hopes of finding just that.
I ended up at Rice University as a researcher in one of their labs. The field of research I'm involved in is [magneto-]optical spectroscopy of semiconductor nanostructures (heterostructures). This sounds intimidating at first, as it did for me, but slowly over time I got the gist of it. I checked out a relevant textbook from the campus library and got to studying and asking questions. Lots of questions. At the end of summer, I got to present my research at a nanotechnology conference to an audience of professors, grad students, and even a nobel laureate.

Advice for students:
Success is not final, failure is not fatal : it is the courage to continue that counts.”as quoted by Winston Churchill. Nothing is easy to achieve in life,you have to put in your best to achieve your goals especially when it comes to pursuing a professional course like this course. Although,it is easy for this course entrants to join the course by clearing this course ,but as you move ahead i.e. higher the levels,the tougher it gets.
