"The undergraduate experience is greatly enriched by attaining research experience early and often.

[...]

The undergraduate experience is greatly enriched by attaining research experience early and often. Recently this has been demonstrated empirically and discussed at length in a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to engineering (Narayanan, 1999), medicine (Murdoch-Eaton et al., 2010), biology (Reynolds, Smith, Moskovitz, & Sayle, 2009), physiology (Desai et al., 2008), neuroscience (Frantz, DeHaan, Demetrikopoulos, & Carruth, 2006), psychology (Wayment & Dickson, 2008), as well as in multidisciplinary discussions in prestigious journals (e.g., Carrero-Martinez, 2011; Russell, Hancock, & McCullough, 2007). - See more at: http://dus.psu.edu/mentor/2013/05/undergraduate-research-students-perspective/#sthash.CjIzGg5z.dpuf

 Exposure to research guides some students toward research after graduation, as well as allows other students to make informed decisions not to pursue careers in research.

Additionally, the earlier students become involved, the more experience they attain, which enhances their career choice.

Many students considering careers in medicine will also benefit greatly from exposure to research. Many medical schools value research experience for admissions.

Perhaps more importantly, a solid basis in hypothesis-driven research is what evidence-based medical practice is built upon. Experience in this area can enhance an understanding of both the medical curriculum and the medical literature. 

[...]

A significant number of first-year students are overwhelmed by the academic process and do not even know that research is an option for them, let alone how to get involved.

[...] Many students get involved in research late in their undergraduate careers, often by chance and learning the hard way that there are opportunities for determined students.[...]"
