Mu Alpha Theta National Convention
So Mu Alpha Theta is the national math honor society for high school students. The final awards ceremony is tonight and the same 2-3 high schools are winning the majority of every single category. There are a handful of sponsors sitting behind me saying stuff like "this isn't fair, they need to divide up the categories by regions or something so more students from different high schools can place"

I haven't said anything to them, but that seems like a shitty way of thinking. What says the OT?

Yes, every category is Top 15 or Top 20, and I would say 80% of every category are Asians.

American Heritage Plantation and Bucholz High School are the two schools completely dominating.

Vestavia Hills is the third school racking up as well.

That's 12 or 16 Asians, respectively.

would seem to leave some Asians out there for the other schools to get


My look I would spend my recruiting budget on a couple of guys who end up being busboys at a Chinese place

Way back in the day I was in Mu Alpha Theta. It was great when my BRHS beat long-time champion Ben Franklin.

Earn it.

Look I was more or less a nerd in high school, but damn if it didnt feel good to be at a math tournament and wipe the smug arse grin off some catholic high kids when we beat them.
