How many weeks is your summer research program?

We don't have an official summer research program. If I can get 6 good weeks from a student this summer I will be absolutely delighted!

We have a long summer, so even though our "official" program is 10 weeks long, most faculty and a few students work at least 12. That gives us about two weeks to get "unburied" from the academic year at the beginning of the summer and two weeks for vacation at the end.  "Class prep" you ask? What's that?
