I was wondering if being a Research Assistant makes any difference on your resume or helps my chances in getting accepted into grad school or do they not care? I have the chance to become an RA for a 'Project on Language and Spatial Development' lab however when I went to the interview I was thinking it was more hands on but it doesn't seem that way. So I'm debating whether to do it because on top of it being 6 hours a week, I must dedicate TWO semesters for it. So maybe then next year (when I'm a senior) volunteer and shadow SLP's. Please let me know your thoughts. I don't want to waste my time if it doesn't help my chances.
Thanks in advance! (I'm really stressing this.)
