So we got our National Merit College Plans Reporting Service letter from high school. And this week i was reminded of my poor performance on the PSAT. It was just one of those "off" days, and I actually cried during the test because I knew this was a disaster. PSAT was probably one of the biggest failures in my high school career since there was a lot of preparation (and subsequent expectation).
So how much will not being a Semifinalist affect my college app?
And what does being a Semifinalist really do?
