    The comment “The key is to email many professors” worries me a little.

    Students should not embark on a campaign of writing all the professors a generic email about opportunities in their lab. It’s unlikely to work.

    Take the time to find out what kind of research goes on in each lab. Target labs in which you have a genuine interest. Be prepared to show up in person and talk intelligently about research projects with the faculty member. Be prepared to emphasize what you have to offer – skills acquired in courses or other jobs, your dedication and willingness to apply yourself, your reliability and punctuality, your ability to communicate clearly and concisely, etc.
