I think the allocation of spots for States has to do with the number of teams that register for Regionals in each region. Yes, some regions are more competitive than others and that will always be the case (and those cells of competitiveness will shift over time). It would be unfair to change the allocation rules based on 'competitiveness' since you can't really define that until after the Regional competitions. Also, you couldn't really call it 'States' if the majority of the teams came from one region.

I realize that, but they shouldn't go just by team amount, because that ended up in this year SE for C only could send 7 teams to states, even though they should probably have sent more do to their high competitiveness.

He's from Pennsylvania, but that's from the Tiger Invitational, which was held sometime in February.

Here are my rankings for next year's top 10 in B. It may be too early, but I'll do it anyway. Two things: I was debating who to have for #3, Bala or Strath, but I decided to make it this way. Also, I was thinking Stroudsburg might not have liked placing 11th, but I wound up not putting them on this list. :?

1. Sewickley
2. Shady Side
3. Bala Cynwyd
4. Strath Haven
5. Welsh Valley
6. JT Lambert
7. Greater Nanticoke
8. Hershey
9. Whitehall-Coplay
10. Stetson

Honestly I would never be sure: thing always go wrong at competition.
Also, at least a few teams have started to study now.
I think that Shady Side, Sewickly, Strath Haven, and Bala Cynwyd all have a chance of making it to the national tournament next year.

Yeah, nice job Exeter! I think that I may have seen you, Binary, in the cafeteria during breakfast. I could be wrong though.

I think Bala and(hopefully) Strath Haven have a good chance of making nationals, because both are very intent on doing well. I'm pretty sure both teams are already starting some work.

Isnt it like 10 months too early to be making predictions, considering that a week before states this year, we bsaically decided it was up in the air, and you all are predicting 10 months in advance? At this point, anyone could do something amazing, or drop out. It's WAY too early to predict ANYTHING

Just know that it doesn't matter how long you study, but how hard you study. ;) And I agree with haven chuck. Nationals hasn't even passed yet, but you're already guessing. And you never know how much other teams are studying.

You just restated what Havenchuck just said, if you didn't realize.

Now, in regards to the predictions. I do think that predictions at this time could be very wrong from what they actually will be, but making predictions is part of the fun of Science Olympiad. Think about sports. Debating who will win, or what will happen is one of the most fun things that you can do, in my opinion. Science Olympiad is sort of similar. Yeah, maybe when the season is really getting started in October in November would be a better time for predictions, but I don't know why you two, Havenchuck and Croman are so vehemently against the predictions now.
