Feeling reminiscent and regretful.
It's not the early 2010s anymore ;)

Welcome back. I remember your username, although besides that basically nothing else about you (tbh the only reason I remember your username is from reading all the NorCal threads one time; I usually don't read old Posting Games).

But in comparison to the number of secondary schools in each state it's more like 2500 or so.

Today I opened up my Wind Power box from state, just to discover that my assembly was broken. I am so sad.

Apparently you can use a VPN through California to get your AP scores if your state's haven't been released yet.

Yeah, I heard about this last year; a few of my more obsessive enthusiastic friends did it (and a few that weren't too). Tbh though I don't really care enough to go through the hassle; it's not like it changes anything to know three days earlier.

APs sound like something else altogether. I'm curious, would you say it's harder studying for an event or for an AP?

The science and math APs I think are strickingly similar to Scioly tests. Take a look at this AP chem test. It asks you questions in groups, and has you apply both math and concepts from different units in the same question. Maybe it's just me, but I think they're similar, which is why Scioly covers things AP doesn't (we have 'Chem Lab' but not 'Chem Test').
