    Assuming that Nagasu gets picked up off the alternate list and Czisny is still recovering from the surgery which of these should be first alt. And yes I am aware some of these could be assigned to JGP still (but haven't been as of today, 8/4).

    The US already picked their 3 skaters for Skate America: Ashley Wagner, Rachael Flatt and Christina Gao.

    Ashley because she's national champion. The other two have good scoring potential but their results last season wouldn't give them 2 GP's let alone 1, but they did very well at nationals to get on USFS good side. Everyone on your list is JGP except Joelle Forte, Becky Bereswill, Amanda Dobbs, and maybe Samaantha Cesario. But I still chose Joelle because I have a soft spot for her. But there isn't much point to this poll unless Flatt withdraws.

    There aren't enough spots on the JGP for all (some, yes, but not all) of Cesario, Siraj, Jiang, Miller, and Keiser in addition to those who have been assigned already. I believe Dunne has aged out.

    Anyway, this poll is basically just for fun- not everything has to have a practical purpose.

    Sorry I'm not the funnest person to be with when I haven't had my morning cup of coffee. But I was thinking that if the skater is on the jgp or even the substitute list for jgp, they are inegibile for the senior gp right?

    I think Cesario's skating is mature and good enough for a GP, if only she would hold out for a spot instead of trying for JGP again. :(

    My favourite out of those is Forte, so I picked her. As long as it's not Morgan Bell, I wasn't impressed by her last performance I saw at Nationals (I forget if it was last year or the year before).

    Rachel is still going to compete? I thought she was done with skating and 2012 Nationals was it for her? How did I miss that. :confused:

    As far as I know Rachael still very much enjoys skating and wants to stick it out as long as she can.

    As Cesario and Miller have been assigned to JGP, then Forte and Jiang are the top choices per this poll. But Nagasu will probably be considered before them if she doesn't pick up another spot somewhere.

    Well from that list Cesario y Miller are doing the JGP so is moot point for those two. Jiang and Keiser are very likely to get the 4th JGP event also.
