I decided to count my own: For C, 88 1st-3rd and 15 4th-5th, and for B, my records are almost non-existent, but I got 2 1st-3rd at state and at least several more invites and regionals. So I suppose I could claim to qualify. Of course, I very much recognize how uncomparable medal counts really are outside of limited circumstances; I'd probably rank a few medals in an extremely competitive tournament over all of my own.

What are we considering as "medaling" because most invites I've been to go to top 3, there is one that I've been to that goes to 5. Then there's regionals which for us goes to 4, and states which goes to 5...

Medaling isn't a constant, right.
5. And, returning to the original point, the medal colors at different tournaments attended matters. One Regional this season medaled to three and ribboned to five. This weekend's medals participants to six. The difference is significant.

I consider medaling any physical awards received. Maybe my count should be higher, I don't know.

SPEEDWRITE ACHIEVEMENT: Triple E at State last year we finished each 3 minute station with 2 minutes or more to remain and we got 1st
GUESTIMATION ACHIEVEMENT: All my boomilevers were guestimated and I medaled with half of them


BEAT THE CURVE ACHIEVEMENT: Thought I did really bad in Dynamic Planet at Wright State this year because they gave us 3 minutes to do a lot of tasks. My partner and I came out and were like "crying". We got 5th.
MULTIPLE GUESS ACHIEVEMENT: Every SciO test. Lol
BS ACHIEVEMENT: On rocks and minerals, the tie-braker was "why is quartz used in watches" and I had 0 clue because it was my first time doing rocks and minerals and I didn't study like crazy. I made up some BS and got it right. I placed 3rd at State and this coincided with the proctor arriving 30 min late.

HOST ACHIEVEMENT: Done this a lot. Not going to name names
PARASITE ACHIEVEMENT: Done this for the first time this year. Cell Biology at MIT (completely useless I was) and we (more like my partner) got 5th.
STUDY EVENT PARASITISM ACHIEVEMENT: Crime Busters, 6th grade used someone's cheat sheet who got 1st at Nationals

UNCONTESTED ACHIEVEMENT: This mostly happens at regionals (Rocks, Triple E, Dynamic...Huge Huge margin)
'MURICA ACHIEVEMENT: State last year, Cyfalls this year
CONSISTENCY ACHIEVEMENT: I got 4th every single time I did Crime Busters, then I broke the streak and got 2nd twice and 3rd once. Also in Fossils this year, I've gotten 1/2 every single time
UN-STREET SMART ACHIEVEMENT: Happened at Wright State this year


ANTI-AYUMU ACHIEVEMENT: Never read textbooks
ANTI-AESTHETICS ACHIEVEMENT: My Rotor Egg Drop that one time I did it

BS ExpD, anyone?

Parasite Rotor Egg Drop at Regionals and State. We got third :D

Anti-Aesthetics Simple Machines last year, but levers aren't meant to be beautiful.
