Where Will You Be Going to College Next Year? 2012-13

College decisions are starting to roll out en masse, so I wanted to start up the annual "Where will you be going to college next year?" thread for those who want to keep the community informed, or perhaps reach out to college teams reading the boards, or hear about other students who'll be attending the same school. As board staff have noted in previous years, the purpose of this thread is to give answers of the form "I am going to college Y and will be playing quizbowl there." I'll be really unhappy if anyone starts bragging about multiple acceptances (come on, dude - you can only go to one school in the end), requesting decision help, or saying other things that shouldn't go here besides "I am going to college Y and will be playing quizbowl there".

I'm going to Amherst College next year. I'm not sure if they actually have a legit quiz bowl team (though Amherst did recently attend the last NAQT SCT Region 1). Hopefully they do, because I'm looking forward to playing college quiz bowl.

Cool. There's not much of an active team, but I live about a mile from the campus and can help out with practices / any tournaments you want to run / buzzer loans /etc.

I'll be going to Columbia Law next fall, and I plan on playing at least a small amount of quizbowl. I'll be in New York around the beginning of August, if anyone wants to hold practices that early. If anyone from Columbia wants to add me to a list, my email is alexandergerten@gmail.com

I'm glad to see that our lawyer quota will stay filled for years to come! Undergrads don't move in until August 31, but practice should begin pretty soon after that.

Also, is anybody doing the U.S. Geography Challenge at Nationals?

153 other people are at last count. I will try and get some sort of poster up where people can write down where they're going next year, and perhaps meet some future teammates. Also, Chris, I know William and Mary has a reasonably active team - they played the MUT) mirror in Richmond a few weeks ago, see: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... =8&t=14042 for the thread that has links to stats for their players.

Notre Dame does have an active team. I can put you in contact with the current leadership, if you would like.

They played a couple of events this school year. Danny Chupin from LASA and Daniel Chapman from Seven Lakes are there, as well as one former St. Mark's guy whose name I can't unearth right now.

Isn't Jiawei (Seven Lakes '11) there too?

Jiawei is at UT, but not doing quiz bowl to my knowledge. The UT team we saw this school year was Daniel, Danny, Ellis Michael (West Monroe, LA, I believe) and Michael Patison (St. Mark's '12).

I'm headed to USC next year and I haven't seen their team playing in any tournaments recently, but I'd like to at least get a taste of college quizbowl. I know Thomas Gaddy from Blair is also going there so hopefully we could get something going.

It would be fantastic if this happened; check with some of the Southern California quizbowlers to see if there are other players attending.

As far as I know, the USC quiz bowl team is dead (though I'm not sure whether it was ever really alive...). In fact, the entire SoCal college quiz bowl circuit seems rather lacking (RIP Dwight), besides the still alive-and-kicking UCSD team.

If you're interested in starting a team at USC, which would be awesome, there are actually quite a few former Arcadia players attending the college right now. Jeff Xiao (class of 2011) and Chung Chan (class of 2012) come to mind. There are probably more that I'm missing. I think most of these guys have sort of given up on quiz bowl, but hey, it's worth a shot amirite?

I have accepted a one-year professorship at the University of Minnesota Morris. This effectively means my quizbowl career as a student is over after five years. I take solace in the fact that my final win at ICT was against my nemesis Jarret Greene and my final win at ACF Nationals was against my other nemesis Marshall Steinbaum.
