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
irritating!!!!

hardly any logic usage

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

according to me difficulty wise
02>04>03

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)
