MORE ABOUT GRAD SLAM

What is Grad Slam? Four of our past competitors – Nicole Leung (UCSB Champion, 2016), James Allen (UCSB Champion, 2014), Phillip Rogers (Runner-Up, 2016), and David Hwang (Finalist, 2016) – catch you up to speed. All in less than 3 minutes, of course.

How do you prepare for Grad Slam? We asked those who have gone before – Grad Slam alums Nicole Leung (UCSB Champion, 2016), James Allen (UCSB Champion, 2014), Phillip Rogers (Runner-Up, 2016), and David Hwang (Finalist, 2016) – to enlighten us.
