is it pointless (this month) to choose schools who do not participate in NM awards? (for the class of 2012)
the question is really the same for later on once finalist status has been determined. if your top choice is Ivy League (which don't particpate), should you choose them as your first choice? do you have to in order to be considered for the $2500 but nothing else? or should your first choice "always" be a NM participating school?
