To be clear this is for the National Achievement Program, which is for African-American Students ONLY, not National Merit. That thread is here:http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/national-merit-scholarships/1427971-class-2014-nmsf-qualifying-scores.html
New Thread for this years scores.
The press release date for NA is 09/25, however NMSC does not release cutoffs for NA for whatever reason so we will never have official determinations.
Letters went out to guidance counselors and homeschool parents on Friday August 30th.
You can feel free to edit the list yourself. Or simply post your information and rely on others to edit it in.
* If you have been notified that you are NASF, post your score (and your state) if it is lower than the score already posted for your state. It will then become the lowest known qualifying score and be indicated as "<=".
* If you have reliable knowledge of what the qualifying score for your state is (try asking whoever notifies you!), post it here, too. It will become the definitive cut-off score for your state indicated by "=".
* Finally, if you know that you did not qualify and had a reasonably high score, it can also be useful to post your score as an example of the highest non-qualifying score. This can be indicated by ">="
Please note: Be conscientious as you post scores on this thread--it would be crushing to be led to believe you have made the cutoff by a post but actually haven't. But everyone should be tolerant of mistakes, too. This is an unofficial source of information derived from a collaborative process and is not, therefore, guaranteed.
