  1. So that’s the school-level competition? I gather you’re going to compete, good luck.

    I won the school-level (San Francisco State), only to have my butt handed to me at the regionals. I was in with 50% of the schools who got not points.

  2. Sadly, I can’t compete for this competition because were organizing this event. We can, however, still opt to compete for the ICPC next semester. 😀

    Coolness! You made it to the regionals, that’s great! I heard that the problems given at the ICPC are really difficult. I have always wanted to join the ACM ICPC but I’m just in sophomore year. I think I’ll wait ’till next school year so I can improve my chances. 😀

    Last year, the UPACM-PC winning team managed to answer only one question and they were the only team who got a point at all.

  3. It’s nice of you to organize so that others can participate.

    Yes, we had trouble at the regional. We started with what looked like the easiest problem, and never got anywhere. It didn’t look hard, there must have been some subtlety we missed.

    I think someone said you’re 17? Already a sophomore? Do they start earlier in the philippines, or is that just you?

  4. Usually we start college here at 16 or 17 but I entered University at 15. I won’t turn 18 until the middle of my junior year. 😀

    I think they really make the hard problems look easy and the easy one look hard. Just to confuse the contestant and to better test their skills on problem analysis.
