Growth industry

It took Maggie and me about eight hours of opening, printing, sorting, shuffling, filing, searching, and piling, but we've finally got this year's REU applications compiled.

We've ended up with 112 complete applications (a 14-to-1 applicant-to-position ratio), with another 20 or so incompletes. That's a 50% increase over last year's roughly 75 (that figure was little changed from the first year's number). I'll likely start the vetting tomorrow or Monday, but there were three or four who've caught my eye already.

For now, it's bedtime. Giassou!
