PLEASE I know there r loads of Indians around

I have applied to both

I can pay minuscule amounts.
I put $1000 but I think it comes to about $1500-2000 if you use the princeton estimator.

I qualified for an intl olympiad. (Informatics ie.programming IOI'03 Bronze Medal)

Why do you ask ? Have you qualified?

By Layne (Layne) on Wednesday, January 28, 2004 - 02:48 pm: Edit

I didn't apply because I'm not really interested in those schools (haha).
But a couple of my friends did. One friend put $3500, I think, and the other friend put $2000.
Very less in America I guess, but in our country, that's a lot.
Hope this helped.

Hey Ishan
we had 3 hrs. for 5 Questions, it was ok

4 of them were based on combinations

hardly any logic usage

I just did the 02 and 03 zonal papers before the test.

according to me difficulty wise

any idea how many students are selected from each zone?

By Ishan (Ishan) on Saturday, January 31, 2004 - 07:52 am: Edit

120 were selected (last time)
