I am a freshman at Tufts and debated for Lexington High School for four years.
I'm honestly fine with most arguments. I usually ran ks and some phil but also sometimes LARP and occasionally theory/T. That being said, I am super not inclined to vote for tricks.
Please, for the love of god, err on the side of explanation (for all cases but especially really nuanced args that I might not have heard before). Clear overviews in the last rebuttal that explains to me why you win the round and write my ballot for me are cool. Impact calc is always super encouraged and appreciated. Also, please signpost as much as possible.
If you feel like it would be a good idea to email me your speech, here you go: email@example.com. However, keep in mind that if you make me read your whole case on my laptop because your speaking is bad, things do not look awesome for your speaker points (on the whole, I am pretty generous with speaker points).
Last note, I don't care if you are standing or sitting or what you are wearing but I would really appreciate if you do your best to be as nice as possible to your opponent. Debates can get heated which is understandable but making people feel shitty for no reason, is well, shitty.
If you have any specific questions, please ask me before the round or email me!
