Advice for undergraduate students

What follows is my advice to undergraduate college students who are working on research projects, independent study, etc. in my lab, divided into three sections:

A kind of syllabus for doing lab research (this is the part I need you to read to do well in the lab; information on how and what to sign up for, rules in the lab, etc.)

Practical advice for those new to research or College

Career advice for those who want a career in research/academia

Advice for applying to graduate school (most of this is also linked under the career advice, but I put it here as a point because I also expect people applying to my lab as prospective graduate students will read it)
