This was one of yours. Do you want to champion anymore? Feel free to 
champion any of the ones that others marked. If you don't have a 
preference, I will go down the list of the rankings I had in place, 
making (Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia William    
Agnew) the next in line. But if you have anyone else, let me know.

I greatly appreciate the offer into your program. However, I have accepted an offer into an REU at another institution.  Thank you very much for you time and consideration.
