    Honestly, do what you love and love what you do. My lack of research will probably keep me from acceptance to some prestigious programs... but I really didn\'t want to spend 20hrs/week in a lab during undergrad just to have my name on a piece of paper... But sadly, I currently spend 40hrs/week in a lab doing even more boring things and won\'t even get my name on a piece of paper... but you gotta eat haha...
