So I received my PSAT scores today and was slightly disappointed to see that I had missed the National Merit Semi-Finalist cutoff, which is 217 here in Virginia.
Critical Reading (AKA the bane of my existence): 64
For a not-so-grand total of... 212
So I was wondering if there is a chance I could be a commended student, or if the commended status is even worth anything. A lot of my family members and friends were finalists, so I was kind of bummed. Especially since I scored a lot better on my SAT.
I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what the commended cutoff usually is in Virginia or similar states. Thanks!
