Congrats to every truth searcher in this thread. It's going the right way. But don't lay down in the RV and expect you'll be at your destination by the end of August. Keep up the pressure. Don't look at SKINS or the professors as your friends and saviors. Treat them as your adversaries until the report is on the table and the right action has been taken. You would be amazed if you knew how little some professors know about analyzing real data. It's likely that they will have a student to look at the data and present the results to them. That's not necessarily a bad thing but it introduces more uncertainty into the process.
Don't let the guard down! Let the professors know that THEIR reputation is also on stake.
The best method is to treat all involved with respect and you will be treated respectfully in turn.
I guess they didn't have very good staff at the school you attended because you obviously have not worked closely with professors in their field of knowledge. That's a shame.
