Would people be interested in a transcript of this? I might have time to do that kind of thing after my finals are done.

Small correction on my part: Ellie Warner (Cambridge) and Tamara Vardomskaya (Chicago B) were also in the top bracket.

I've done the first hour and started the second hour, and I'm putting them here. Normally I'd put it in a Pastebin or something like that, but I wanted it to be accessible from the forums directly in case someone is searching for a related topic.

EDIT: Of course, as I transcribe more questions I'll keep updating the thread.
