Having seen tests from Yale and Cornell, I don't consider those as good in quality as e.g. Westlake (of which I have also seen tests). Also, getting back raw scores is especially nice (as is done by Westlake and UPenn). Princeton I'm not sure about, but I'm pretty sure UPenn is higher quality and they're close together and were at similar times. Regarding the other three, I'm not really willing to trust those without significant indication that they'll be good (i.e. I'm looking at UChicago, but probably not). Regarding competition, NY/PA/NJ has nothing on Ohio invites (many of which also include Northville) - a side by side comparison is enough to show that - just at how much Mason dominated at UPenn (excepting Harriton of course).



FYI Solon does release raw scores for events too

Nice to know, hadn't heard this before. However the conflict with regionals is unfortunately still there.

Wright State/Centerville is probably the best invitational in Ohio in terms of competition. My high school from Michigan is looking at going there next year (unfortunately I'm no longer in high school :( )
