Re: New York NASAT Tryouts

So with the additional interest in the last few days, are these tryouts happening again? After briefly talking with Ben Zhang, I think there should be no tryouts for New York. Since NASAT is like a month and a half away, I will select a team (probably with the help of Ben Zhang) from the people tha...
