      My professor seems to distinguish an SNP from an SNV from a point mutation.
      I seemed to think that an SNV and a point mutation were the same thing.
      So, what is the difference between a "single nucleotide variant" (SNV) and a point mutation?
      I can’t seem to get it.

      I’d say the difference is in the frequency in population. However, I cannot find any info on that now.
