I know that as soon as a high schooler takes their first PSAT, they end up on college mailing lists. But I'm wondering ... do colleges simply email everyone (or everyone in a regional area or at specific feeder schools) that took the PSAT? Or do they have access to the scores and aim for the ones that seem promising/fitting?
I'm just wondering because my daughter took her first PSAT in October. She hasn't received a score yet. But as of last week, she's getting inundated with random college email. I would love it if they actually used the score to determine whether to bother ... that would mean she did okay. lol
