So given we have another decline we need to pick a new person to invite?
The next few I see in the order are as follows. Does anyone have any strong
thoughts? 

 


Saleh

Sakhnini


Josiah

Smith


Michael

And to simplify housing, if you want to let him start 1 week late, we could
simply have Nathan participate for 9 weeks, where he starts 1 week late, but
ends at the same time with the rest of the students. I don't think you want
two separate final presentations. Some REU sites run for 9 weeks only, so
that is also an option. It will be his job to make sure he keeps up with all
the students despite his 1 week late start, if that is what we let him do.

Ioan, 

Can we ask him to stay another week? To August 5, will be fine 
if he's wroking with me.  That may complicate housing.

Dear Ioan, 
Sorry for the delayed response. I am excited about the opportunity to 
participate in the BigDataX REU program. 

I will be competing in the ACM-ICPC world finals in Thailand May 16-20. I am

scheduled to spend the following week of May 23rd touring the area. If at 
all possible, could I start the REU the following week of May 30th? If not, 
I am prepared to make the appropriate flight changes that would allow me to 
start the REU on the scheduled date of May 23rd. 

I would like to accept your offer to participate in the 2016 BigDatax REU 
program; however, it must be noted that although I expect to be able to 
change my flight, I do not currently have the tickets that allow me to be in

the United States on May 23rd. 
I will send a signed copy of the offer letter later tonight, unless a 
digital signature is sufficient. 

I am looking forward to participating in the BigDataX program this summer.  

Sincerely, 
Nathan De Graaf
