Hm. What I'm suggesting is that perhaps if Krauss had acceded to his
request, he may not have got his degree. And perhaps Krauss had
experience of that happening. Hence his refusal. At the very least, he
probably realised that the guy was capable of continuing his studies in
spite of his problem. After all, in most cases, someone has a higher
chance of getting a degree if they continue their studies uninterrupted
than if they don't.
