Re: Where Are You Going Next Year? [Collegiate edition, 2014

I'm going to UVA next year to study economics. I probably won't be an active quizbowl participant immediately, but I imagine I'll get involved at some point.

We're down to 10 teams (8 D1, 2 D2), so we're combining the field. As it stands, we'll do a round robin prelim and split into top 6/bottom 4 with an advantaged final. If another team drops, we have a backup schedule in case.
