Yep, only one double-sided page of notes (I don't know about the samples though). Oh, and you have to wear closed-toed shoes, chemical splash goggles, pants/skirts that reach the ankles, a long-sleeved shirt, and a chemical apron or lab coat that reaches the knees or you'll get kicked out.

I don't really see that as a problem... just get your protection together and compete... not wearing an apron is a stupid way to lose.

Btw, based on Forensics exams ya'll have taken, do you ever see evidence come up as "inconclusive", or, are you always inclined to find some link from evidence to a victim?

Yeah. In many cases I have found evidence that is irrelevant to the crime scene. Additionally, some evidence may pertain to the scene but not eliminate any suspect.

I've always been able to come up with a most probably suspect, despite the fact that sometimes the information contradicts itself. I doubt that they would set up the whole lab and not have a suspect - then what would you write for your analysis? Haha

On another note ... how much material do you think they will give us for the fibers? Just a couple square inches, maybe?
