Dr D,

I was a math TA when I was a grad student. In the summer of 1973, I taught an undergrad course in statistics because none of the profs wanted to teach it, and it was a way for me to earn some extra money over the summer and teach something different from the Freshman-Sophomore, Calc-DiffE sequence. Most of the students were in the BioMed program with Albany Med who had just completed their first year at RPI. They would receive their MDs in 1978. Although most of those students were quite intelligent, I would be concerned if some of them were involved in statistical inference. :-D

Edit: Part of my concern is that they learned statistics from me. ;-)
