Professor Burke took a poll of everyone in the group and offered me the last spot on the group. I guess I didn't make everyone angry! I'm very keen to accept and will tell him that tomorrow.
Right now, the quarter is taking up a lot of my time, and I should probably concentrate on the classes since they're only a few weeks long. I only get once chance to do well in my classes, but I'll make sure I put in a lot of effort over the summer to produce high quality research.
Maybe I can sneak in some research anyway...
