Re: New York 2013

I just noticed something... Paul J. Gelinas was 3rd at nationals in 2010 (only around 10 points or so behind Arden, and about 100 pts ahead of Booth :shock: ). That group of 9th graders that year must've trickled up into WM and played a huge part in their 5th place finish...because that class corre...

Re: College Advice for Younger Olympians

If I don't get in, I'd probably be crushed. This is a problem. I kind of disagree. I think it's a problem if by crushed you mean won't get out of bed, no motivation to do anything crushed. If you'll just be very sad, I think you probably fall well within the realm of normal. The best advice I have ...

Re: College Advice for Younger Olympians

To those of you who have experience, what SAT prep would you recommend, especially studying all the vocab? I did a lot of practice packets myself. My advice would be to learn a lot of nitpicky grammatical rules (misuses of common words [irritating technically doesn't mean annoying; you're little br...

College Advice for Younger Olympians

One thing that I noticed about the college app process is that it can be mind-numbingly confusing. Everybody tells you different things about how the application process works - from whether racial quotas are still in effect to whether any institution is truly "need-blind" to where the best programs...
