Dang. Lost a research student.

I had three research students last semester. I've blogged on them before. One finished their time with me, which left two. Then one of them, the one with a pleasant personality and decent in the lab, begged off this semester because they are a varsity athlete in a spring sport, and they feel like they've got way too much on the plate. I know from a trial by fire, that a student who is overwhelmed sucks in the lab. The chances of my lab topping the priority list are quite low. I said he could skip this semester, but that he should apply to the REU for the summer.

The student left is good in the lab, but not as good as they thinks they are...
