Whoa! The guesses are 4000+ for first? :o
How many get places at Nats again?
Probably 3500+ for any medaling... Gosh my team needs to step up!
I personally haven't heard of any scores 4000+, I know that 2 schools that aren't going to nats in socal had scores that were 3400+.
I think 3500+ is enough to guarantee medaling at nationals for division B, 3000+ you'll have a fair shot at getting a medal :P

Highest scores I've heard for division C were from an user on this site reporting ~3300? Also, I've heard of teams getting 2990 and 2700 at various tournaments.

^this

I think it's very reasonable to predict 3000+ for 1st place C div. I don't see there being more than two or three 3000s though, I'd imagine anyone in the high 2000s has a good shot of medalling, top 10 at the very least. What I usually saw at nats was the top 2 or 3 places having very high scores (always a few teams with superstar builders), but the rest of the medalling places coming in noticeably lower. Of course this varies between years, it'll probably be more difficult to permeate that top 6 for next year.

First Place in PA Bridges was around 2400. Do you guys think that would that crack top 20 at nats?

Top 20 should be possible regardless for division b or c
For division b, probably top 15 as well

Guarantee? Probably 4000+, or at least 3700.

Our team is getting probably somewhere close to 3200 as of now; hopefully we can raise it to 3500+ by the time Nationals sneaks around...

What place do you think a score of 2000 will be in division C? It's so ironic, since everyone was amazed at getting above 2000 and it's quite a norm now.
