n is for the shell, l is subshell, ml is the subshell shape, and ms is the spin
so i'll start it off
we're only looking at 2p

so first: n=2, l=1, m=-1, and s=1/2
It can have a fourth quantum number s that be either +1/2 or -1/2...every shell (n number) has sub-shell (l number) oriented in one of the possible orientations (m number) that only allows two electrons with opposite magnetic spin (s number).
The neutral boron atom has the following shell configuration:\[[Ne]2s^{2}p^{1}\]2p corresponds to principle quantum number n=2 (2 in 2p), azimuthal quantum number l=1 (p in 2p). I'm almost positive that the choice of magnetic quantum number m and spin quantum number s are arbitrary in this case. To the extent the choice of m and s are arbitrary, any of the following work:\[n=2, l=1, m_{l}=-1, s=+1/2\]\[n=2, l=1, m_{l}=-1, s=-1/2\]\[n=2, l=1, m_{l}=0, s=+1/2\]\[n=2, l=1, m_{l}=0, s=-1/2\]\[n=2, l=1, m_{l}=1, s=+1/2\]\[n=2, l=1, m_{l}=1, s=-1/2\] I recall reading that by convention the lowest available m is assigned first, but +1/2 s electrons are assigned before -1/2 s electrons. I'm having trouble figuring out where I read that. In any case, all of this works out to exactly what BohrMachine posted, above: \[n=2, l=1, m_{l}=-1, s=+1/2\]
I found my source. Lecture Notes #1 (LN-1), page 9, second paragraph after the bullet points. The Aufbau Principle.
