what is the tier of this activity: top 50 in a competition with 12000+ teams?Answered
Carnegie Mellon's cybersecurity competition 2018 (PicoCTF), the largest cybersecurity competition in history
competed in teams of four against other STEM-oriented students.
got top 50 among 12,000+ teams
can you compare this to another activity, say Intel STS, or USAMO qualification?
Personally I’d say using collegevines tier system I’d say it is tier C. It is a national competition and you placed highly. It’s C as you placed top10%+ but you didn’t medal (1st-3rd) so that’s my rational.
Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
