There's a question I've been mulling over for some time now that has me both confused and irked( never a good combo). I was hoping someone could clarify things up for me. ¡Gracias!
So I earned national merit finalist with a 225, which I was pretty stoked about, and recently the National Hispanic Scholar thing too. I didn't know much about it, as it hadn't been an award I was gunning for, so I looked up the cut-off score to see if it was maybe just the NMF with Hispanic heritage, but no! The cut off is 184? That wouldn't make NSF any state, let alone Washington (where I live) which needs at 220.
I just don't get this! Do they think we are stupid or something akin to that because we are Hispanic? Why would it be lower?
