Research played a vital role in my undergraduate
education. I learned so much doing independent research; as much,
if not more, than from going to lectures. I had to deal with IRB
approvals, research schools, go and conduct research at these schools,
and analyze data from more than 200 students. It made me more interested
in the other school work I was doing. I realized how interconnected
the work I was doing was with what I was learning in my classes.
My sociology classes, psychology classes, and even biology classes
all somehow related to my research.
