2007 ACM Contest Winners Announced

odano Re:Good job Harvard (110 comments)

I was part of the team that placed 2nd in the southern california regional, and seeing how badly some of these teams did [harvard, UNC] is very disheartening, because our region only had enough schools competing to send 1 team. It is tough to know that the only team that closely beat us in the regional contest placed 12th in the world, and yet the US is still sending teams who can't solve more than 1 or 2 problems and crack the top 50.

Maybe the ACM should open up more spots based on how the regions perform at the World Finals and less on the number of schools that compete if they really want to send the best teams.
