* Students who have already graduated from high school (or equivalent) are not eligible to compete at NEAML. In 2005, Choate brought an ineligible player to the championship, and was ruled ineligible for a team award. Had the postgraduate's score (11) been subtracted from Choate's score, Choate would have placed second with 67 points.
Note: Small and Medium School scores are comparable, because they are derived from the individual scores of six students and a team round where each question is worth three points. For Large School scores, there are eight students per team and each team round question is worth four points. So, to make the scores across divisions roughly comparable, multiply the Large School scores by 3/4.
