Because National Merit doesn't post a list of cutoff scores by state, people on this site have traditionally posted data here. As NM mailed letters August 24th, we should be getting some news soon. As you receive your notification, it would be great if everyone would update the score under their state to compile a list for the individuals who, due to school mix-ups and bureaucracy, won't know about their status for several more weeks.
Please note: Please 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. Also, be sure you only edit a state cutoff if the score you have is lower than the existing score under each state.
Also-- Feel free to include boarding school regions and DC.
