>>What do you mean you don't have the resources to work on a project
that interests you?  You say that you are an undergraduate student. 
Go to one of your professors and ask him or her if you could do a
research project in his/her lab.  Can't think of anything more
impressive on an undergrads resume than a publication with his/her
name as one of the authors.

RE: Undergraduates appearing on research papers

I am an undergraduate myself, currently involved in neuropathology
research. I hope that I will also have a part in the resulting
publications. I am wondering as to how this could (positively) effect
any future applications to med-school/grad-school? Does something
like this really make a big difference? (even though it might
slightly effect the GPA since there is less time for studying).

Any input from people that make decisions regarding applicants for
med-school/grad-school would be very appreciated.
