At this point, is everyone just mainly studying for two events that they think they can medal in? I'm basically doing that(still studying for my other events, just not as much in depth.)

Our thermo team is having some issues. Density and potions are what I'm really working on. Some solar. Not much circuit.

No. If you want your team to do well you have to do all of your events, not just two. Bombing those other events is really, really bad and they add a lot to your team score. Although you might not place as well, I highly suggest focusing on all your events to not let your team down. I'm doing 6 events and working hard in all of them. It's the only way to (hopefully) be more consistent as a team and place better.

How do you have time to fully devote to 6 events?

^ totally agree, but for lower placing teams (Marie Murphy and Community are both top-performing teams so they are excluded) it's a good idea to have each team member focus on an event or two. Since there is pretty much no way some teams will be placing, individual medals are essentially the only ways to "get a little glory". Like, whether my team places 41 or 49 doesn't really matter that much, so it's okay if we severely bomb our events as long as we can do well in certain ones.

That makes sense. I just meant that I still expect to do well in my other events, except some events I feel very strong in that if I put in extra time for them, I could get a very high placement.
