It very much sucks to be eliminated from the TopCoder Collegiate Challenge by less than 3.6 points.

Apparently, you came in 104th. Ouch :(

Nothing I can say but agree that it sucks.

Who would you like eliminated? I can make it look like it was a horrible accident.

I came in 104th, so if you can eliminate the people who came in 100th, 99th, 98th, and 96th (I like the dude in 97th), we might solve this...

Evidently TC has rules about the semifinals - in the TCO 2003 a few of the semifinalists from round 4 couldn't make it to the on-site rounds. So the next few people in line got to go to the semis instead.

Obviously this doesn't apply to the online rounds. But what was sad was that in the TCO Round 2, there were only 197 entrants out of the 200 that qualified. 3 people who qualified didn't enter and they were automatically eliminated from ALL the rest of the rounds.

Hmm. Don't know why I just told that story. But it's TC.
