Dear REU BigDataX applicant:
We have concluded our search for students to join our REU program this 
summer. Although you had a very good record, we were not able to accept 
you into the program. Unfortunately, many qualified students had to be 
turned down. We hope you will consider us in the future (if you are 
still eligible) and that you will pursue interesting research 
opportunities elsewhere this summer.
