States was very interesting I'll say. It's upsetting a bit, but I'll live. Quite proud of what we, and what I've done. Hopefully can still proctor or write tests.

The 10 medals was also interesting...But I think it was fine ;).

On another note I don't see an issue with the penalty...especially from what happened with Monroe Woodbury? They definitely informed the teams tons of times and honestly the issue with paper work is completely different from the one with unattended rooms imo. We've been booted to the cafeteria years ago when people were messing around in the room and I feel if that's true, I believe it was, then that's deserved. A ruined computer system or messed up room, after running regionals, is something nobody wants. I also think point penalties are better than a dq at least if I had to pick. My opinion is things that damage schools, people, property, cheating, etc that doesn't go with the code of conduct deserves a dq, else some alternative penalty. Sorry if I misunderstand.
Yo, shouldn't you change your division to Grad? :P
2010: 5th in NYS
2011: 4th in NYS
2012: 3rd in NYS

Could someone explain why Chaminade, Camden, and Benjamin Cardozo received fifty point penalties? @BroNi the Science Guy?
Also maybe because teams missed a judging assignment (i.e., the teacher wasn't present at the event to judge). Cardozo head coach had a personal matter for the day and only showed up before the awards, so he missed his Boom assignment. I am pretty sure they were supervised the whole way through.

Life on the other side is actually oddly satisfying. Actions have a much larger impact and it's really easy to still be involved. Take off the stress of having to take tests all day long, and I'd argue that it's better than being a competitor. Plus, there's no limit on how long you can stay involved (bottleneck being your lifetime…lol)

NYC Regional actually certified the unsupervised room penalties, so he knows whereof he speaks.

I just want to reach out to the students in Ward Melville and Gelinas. I, and probably everyone else in this forum, have heard about the science olympiad- related scandals concerning your town. I know you're under a lot of pressure and scrutiny right now, and I'd just like to reach out to each and every one of you and give you a great big hug. You are all so strong, and I really do look up to youakk for your amazing results in tournaments. Even though we're technically competing, science olympiads have to stick together, and I'll be rooting for you guys at states, win or lose. Good luck fro, CP Weber!
I AM NEAP. YOU ARE NEAP. WE ARE ALL NEAP.
