Matt Schnippert

Hi, I'm Matt Schnippert from Florida State University, and you're watching me on jeopardy.com.

What's your major?
I'm double majoring in chemistry and biochemistry, and I hope after getting my Ph.D. to either become a college professor or a high school chemistry teacher.

How did you prepare for today's game?
Um, I actually really didn't prepare for today that much. I watched game shows, I watched Jeopardy! when it came on, I watched other--other rival game shows, and I didn't really do much book studying because I realized I was at the point where too much studying would just get me confused.

How did you find out you were chosen as a contestant?
I found out that I was selected as a contestant after having a long, bad day at school, and after being disappointed that I didn't get the FedEx package, when my fiancée called my mother at home, and the package had actually arrived at my parents' house. And so, after a long day, I found out that I got a nice pick-me-up at the end of the day and found out that I had made it on Jeopardy!

Win one for Florida State, Matt!
