National merit is this scholarship program, and if you get a PSAT score in the top half of a percent of juniors taking it you qualify to be a semi-finalist. I think. It's adjusted by each state so I think it's the top half of a percent in whatever state you're in, so it's relatively low in Washington compared to states like New York or California. And considering how much I saw you guys studying for SATs, I'm sure that all of you who took the PSAT did fine.

SIMUW consistently has disproportionately high numbers of National Merit.

This year, myself, Noah, Chris, and Edward, if I recall, all made the semifinals, and (I think) all plan to make the finals at least.

National Merit. meh. Talking about an achievement for a test score on a single day. It really is absurd.

In any case, I'm disqualified now, though I missed it by one question as a sophomore.

California has a low of low-achieving students too - I think Massachusetts has the highest cutoff, at 221. And Washington is above average. Wyoming on the other hand, is 200. ;)
