My-Hoa
01:03:06
After asking about researching/internships at one of the branches this weekend, I was told that it is much more difficult for 1st/2nd year students at the main campus to be involved in research because of the large class sizes until they are in their last 2 years, where classes are smaller and they have more experience. Since Honors classes are smaller, does this present more opportunities for underclassmen or is this still aimed more towards the upperclassmen?
