I am a rising Junior in high school, and recently been introduced to the concept of research and how medical schools value this greatly. I've been trying to find research programs that don't cost much because medical school is expensive. But I don't entirely have an idea of what I want to research. Is it worth it to spend money on research, and will it look bad on my application for medical school?
