Re: New Jersey 2019

To be fair, Monty is already pretty close to us. If you look at least year's results, http://njscienceolympiad.org/tournaments/2018/state/2018_state_finals_results.pdf , they were 29 points away from CMS, and the HS was 7 points from 2nd place, 27 away from 1st. Let's not forget 2017 C; Montgomery ...

Re: New Jersey 2019

As a grad who still likes to be nosy once in a while, are we all still waiting for the full results, the state website seems not to have been updated yet? I thought they only took a while to release results in 2017 because they were controversial but I guess...?

Re: How do you guys sign up for events?

We don't have enough people signing up to do tryouts, they sound fun to do though!
Tryouts are not fun... :cry:
Eh sometimes they can be :)
Grading and supervising tryouts also isn't fun, but it's also hilarious, so y'know...

Re: How do you guys sign up for events?

We do it like lumo at the beginning of the season, but some events are definitely more under-subscribed than others, so at invitationals (especially since none of the invitationals follow our State schedule, so somebody will be hoping to do 2 events at States but they conflict with each other at inv...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Does anyone know what the best ways to split this up with a partner are? On a lot of events there are ways to split it in two but everything seems really related on this one. I agree with what everyone else has said that you should have a pretty decent knowledge of everything, I guess things like h...

Re: Please list college choice and related info in list form

Visiting is really useful, I agree with east, you should try to visit a variety of uni types to see what feels right, but I wanted to clarify for anyone that it is possible to choose a school, and make an informed choice, without visiting if visiting that particular place isn't an option. If you're ...

Re: Science Olympiad at MIT Invitational 2019

Caltech's a much smaller place but there's no shortage of people willing to support every aspect of Science Olympiad. But that's probably just another reason why Caltech >> MIT. :P Chill...they're allowed to run their organization however they want. Y'all can talk about all the issues ya want, but ...

Re: How do I motivate my team?

Not all invitationals require coaches to grade? Princeton and UPenn are both within a reasonable range of Long Island where it looks like you're from, and neither requires any grading from coaches, i think. (PUSO also has the advantage, if nothing's changed since last year, of having no registration...
