Where is everyone going next year?

Post by Frater Taciturnus »

I know April 1st is D-Day for a lot of people here; Anybody get news from any schools (i.e. where the really good seniors are going next year?)

EDIT: Changed title. Now reflecting desire to know where people are actually going.

This thread does not usually start until people know for sure where they are going. Listing acceptances is pretty much a dick-measuring contest [can we say that, here in the high school area?]; once we all know where we're headed, it's ok to share.

I'm not really good, but I'll start this off anyway...

No team yet, but I'll probably start one. I can't live without this...

It's accurate enough where any offensiveness can and should be overlooked. Do just post your choice of college here, as a list of where you were accepted will only cause Pat or Lafer to crash the thread with a well-deserved mocking. Intention to play in college would also be useful information.

That was where I was hoping this would lean more towards. I guess it is a little early for this.

If the time works out (I don't know how exactly how work and class timing will work out), I certainly will join MAQT this Fall.

I've already sent my intent form to CLIS...

With Grad Schools, your mileage may vary as far as timing.

According to Financial Times, the acceptance rates at most US colleges is going to be reported at historic lows though with a caveat that more students are applying to more places and have been more involved in community and extracurricular activities.

So Harvard apparently has an acceptance rate this year of 9%, Penn I think at 14%. Basically, amazingly low. So congratulations for those of you who made it.

Goucher College for me -- which unfortunately, does not have a quiz bowl team. I may start one but I'm not sure I have the patience...

I believe it. I was waitlisted for Swarthmore, which had an acceptance rate last year of 22% (difficult enough), but which this year apparently only accepted somewhere around 6%. I'm feeling lucky just to have been waitlisted. :razz:

Notre Dame's starting to play in more tournaments. Get in touch with Josh Mollner, I'm sure he'd love some more dedicated teammates.

We played them this year at GIT at WashU. They went 5-9, but they were better than their record indicates, I thought.

In an attempt to revive this thread I think May 1st is the big decision day for a lot of seniors on this board. Next year I'm going to Harvard and I plan to continue playing. Colin the other senior on my team is going to Middlebury.

I'm going to Hampshire College, and almost certainly will not be playing unless the Amherst team that apparently exists doesn't mind being a Five College team. Or I might just show up at stuff.

If you're interested in dealing with Amherst to get your fix you may want to talk to Ryan or Jesse. Their information is on the Maize pages. Otherwise, you may be SOL because there's no easy way to Boston from there without a car, and Boston is where all the tournaments are, with the exception of even more difficult destinations like New Haven and Providence.
