lumo is in texas right now.
What forum members were running events, actually? Are there other alums who might be able to tell us where they are in the process?

Re: New Jersey 2020

Obviously I'm rooting for a particular team to win but I hope most of all that tests are a good enough quality that everyone feels their preparation was worth it and that we don't have any controversies with events being thrown out and stuff :cry:

Re: New Jersey 2020

The Facebook page said the tournament would happen but not the awards ceremony, a bit sad but I suppose better than cancelling the tournament?

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 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 ...
