Hold on a second.  I'm not remembering such a grim outcome with 100%
failure from prior summers of code as you're describing.  Before I
start beating myself up, I guess I'd like a little more information
--- is there some specific project or statistic that you're thinking
of that brings you to that conclusion?

How is that different from what happened in previous summers where
students made proposals, received feedback, and were accepted and
matched to mentors or rejected based on how the discussion went?
