One student failed to submit a midterm evaluation: in future, we
should include a request to remind their students in the reminders we
send out to mentors about evaluations.

There was confusion and chaos around the selection process, but many
orgs had the same issues as the Melange webapp has changed
significantly this year. Hopefully next year will go more smoothly!

I haven't heard any complaints about the projects that did (or didn't)
get selected in the end, and in fact, we ended up giving back a couple
of slots because we didn't have the proposals to fill them out.
