I also REALLY like this thread...as I am beginning to decide which labs
I will write to, and will be sending out letters the end of the summer/early
fall...I'd like to know what does the standard letter say? SHould you include
recommendation letters then? or later if it gets more serious? How well
do you need to know what you want to do in their lab? How can you be sure just
from publications what they may be looking to do in the future?
