Does anyone know of Dr. Carragee, associate professor and researcher of orthopedic surgery at stanford? What's his status up there, what kinda' guy is he? I am planning on doing some research with him this summer, and just seeing what to expect out of the dude. Also, they are not funding me, so how much can I find a place to crash there for COUPLE months--and obviously i won't have a car, nor do I know anyone upthere yet. Do you guys know of whom I may be able to contact from stanford to ask for some funds, other than the the mentor himself--cuz he clearly said that since I'm from another school, I would not be funded, but all I want is a place to crash, paid by them. They won't put me up in a room at the dorms? Any input?
