How prestigious is this award? I sounds like a pretty big deal..."National"
Do colleges place a decent amount of weight on it? What if someone was shy of National AP by one score or something...How would they match up to someone who has National AP? ie. Exactly same AP tests and score for 7 tests. Person A got a 4 on APES. Person B got 3 on AP CS AB. Person A gets National AP, but Person B took a "harder" test. Would colleges value Person A more than Person B?
Also, should Person B submit their AP scores to colleges for evaluation? Should Person B still submit their scores if they are applying as a Computer Science major?
