Carnegie Mellon "Mathletes" Place Fifth in 2012 Putnam Competition

Carnegie Mellon University has placed fifth in the Mathematical Association of America’s 73rd William Lowell Putnam Competition, the premier mathematics contest for undergraduate students. This marks the second consecutive year that a Carnegie Mellon team has placed among the top five teams. Only 15 other universities have placed in top five more than once since 1990.
