    Jeopardy

    Anyone else taking the online qualifying test for Jeopardy tonight?

    I'm hoping they include some questions from Celeberty Jeopardy on SNL.

    Depends on what time zone you live in, not sure when the deadline is.

    I'm getting in a late, 30 minute cram session right now.

    I think I hurt my brain.

    I probably got 5 out of 50 questions right.

    Sorry to hear that...was it the same test for everyone? What was on it?

    Time already passed. Thanks though!

    Re: Jeopardy

    I knew 8 or 9 questions, took educated guesses at 5 or 6 more, and sat there dumbfounded for 15 seconds at the other 35.

    I'm just not as smart as I look, apparently.

    so... "Automatic Points" wasn't one of the categories?

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Re: Jeopardy

    I took the test last year and thought I did really well at the time. I didn't hear anything for months and months, however, and forgot all about it. Then, at the beginning of November, I received an email saying I had passed and inviting me to an interview in Pittsburgh on December 7.

    Unfortunately, my capstone presentation for my Master's was also on December 7 (I checked, and there was no way around it), so I had to opt out.

    I had planned to take the test again last night, but when I went to the site to register I discovered that if you are invited to an interview, you have to wait 18 months to retake the test.

    Maybe next year.
