I am not a chemistry student - graduate or otherwise. I'm just a Breaking Bad fan who assumes that there must be some way that a chemistry professor would consider one student more promising than another - but has no idea how it would happen.
Test scores? Accuracy in handling the flasks and fluids and whatnot? Creative approaches to unsolved questions in the field?
