Lol not an excuse
Almost every other State with overall competitiveness similar to or above that of NJ's releases their schedule months in advance. Event cancellations are not really frequent in other States

Oh, I definitely agree that 3 weeks out, giving only a tentative schedule is rather ridiculous, considering other states like Ohio had them out for a while.

But I suppose my perspective is that the ability to respond to scheduling conflicts is what separates the great teams from the good teams. imho, WWPHS North and South always do well because the people they have are just intrinsically smart and versatile.

Sure, the other top 6 schools like JPS, Monty, Princeton, and EB have their own geniuses, and people who can study hard to catch up, but it's moments like the schedule conflicts that screw everything up. Our best testers all have scheduling issues, so meh

Bump! Tenafly Middle School will be there.
I'll be doing Crave the Wave and Solar System... did anyone else notice the Solar System Test mix-up at Regionals? The parameters did not match up with the event content at all :? I talked to my coach, who said that the State Supervisors have corrected the test. Let's hope for the best!

With NJ states tomorrow, I want to wish all the teams, Division C and Division B, the best of luck!

A lot can happen in one day; miracles can happen as teams scramble (no pun intended) to finish devices last minute, study in cram sessions, etc. For those of you who are cramming (like me), take solace in knowing you're not the only one xD

I think we should meet up at the cafeteria; we can meet at the tables area at the end of the lunch hallway.

EDIT: Oh, @goldfalcon and I will be wearing black Tenafly T-shirts, with orange text on the back. If you spot two Tenafly Middle School participants walking together (one Indian, and one Asian), its probably us :lol:
