I'm currently a junior, and I decided to try to get into an REU this summer so it would be easier to get into grad school. I applied to 6, and was only accepted to one. Unfortunately, the REU I was accepted to had an unspoken reply deadline, which I did not meet (I waited 3 days to respond). Now, I am at a loss. I'm not sure what to do with my summer, because I really don't want to stay at home to work the same summer job I've had for the past three years. I want to travel and do something that will further my education. Any suggestions?
