So am I. I more or less thought so, but still it was pleasant to be reassured. Everyone who's in, post here!

Not a single person from my town... for shame.

I made it again.
There are a lot of towns in the coutnry, and most of them have not USAMO people, so don't worry about it.

What's up with Thomas Jefferson Academy in VA? Nearly 10 qualifiers?
|By E_L (E_L) on Tuesday, April 13, 2004 - 11:01 pm: Edit|
Well, they're a crazy math/science/tech magnet high school that draws from the Northern Virginia/DC vicinity. The students there are exceptional at all the Olympiads/Quiz Bowl/Science Bowl... This list goes on...

F***in' Greg Gauthier...from IL - he's this insane little kid who knows everything about math and science there is to know. I thought his brother Paul was incredible, single-handedly leading the Wheaton North HS Academic Team to the State Championship three years in a row and basically being Jesus, but little Greg is already better than Paul at everything! It makes me gag.

TJ Academy has been ranked #1 in math for as long as I can remember... (and highly despised for it).
I would be very surprised if they DIDN'T have 10 qualifiers.

You know Paul, Ilovefood? He is ungodly at academic bowl.
|By Willothewisp (Willothewisp) on Thursday, April 15, 2004 - 11:03 pm: Edit|
Yes, finally Gunn has gotten the credit it deserves! 5 qualifiers! No giving two of them to our archrival!

athlonmj - i had the chance to meet him at the Von Steuben opener this year - i had never seen him perform before that, and i was just blown away completely. Later in the season, at Lincolnway east, he proved to me that it wasn't just a one time deal. he just amazes me.

What was the approxiamate index to get in? Any guesses?
|By Texas137 (Texas137) on Friday, April 16, 2004 - 01:51 pm: Edit|
the index is 210
the AIME floor is 7 (for grades 10 and below).
|By Athlonmj (Athlonmj) on Friday, April 16, 2004 - 06:54 pm: Edit|
Ilovefood, we played Stevenson at the semifinals at Von Steuben but got knocked out. If we had won, we would have gotten a chance to play Wheaton (and get our asses kicked) :P

3 USAMO qualifiers in one post? If anyone needs evidence that intelligent people are the primary composers on this site, send 'em to this thread.

i remeber taking the AIME. i sat there for three hours looking at the questions not knowing what the hell i was doing. i think i got one right. i think the closest my school got to 210 was around 150. we suck so bad, i think i was the only junior in my school to qualify to even take the AIME. shame on us.... but then again we are a public school in kansas. is qualifying for the AIME even worth puting on a college Ap? or is it not worth it unless you made USAMO, which i obviously didnt.
|By Texas137 (Texas137) on Saturday, April 17, 2004 - 07:27 pm: Edit|
>"is qualifying for the AIME even worth puting on a college Ap?"
Sure! It puts you in the top 5% of AMC-takers, which is already a pretty select bunch. I wouldn't mention your score, though.
