PSAT Class of 2014 Commendation

violinmaniac101violinmaniac101 Posts: 13Registered User New Member
Hi everyone,

I am new to college confidential. I got my scores back today and I am a junior in NJ (Class of 2014). My scores were this:

CR-63
M-76
W-64
Total- 203

I am REALLY stressing out whether or not I got a letter for commended. Any hope based on this? Any scholarship opportunities? Don't be afraid to share your scores below too!

    Yeah, I think you have a pretty good chance at commended. The cutoff last year was 200 and the year before it was 202. I don't think that it has ever been above 203.

    will a 212 make it in florida?
  • violinmaniac101violinmaniac101 Posts: 13Registered User New Member
    The cutoff for commended is national, so therefore you made it. But as far as merit, Florida fluctuates between 210-215 so I would keep my hopes up and pray that its the same as last year's, which was 211.

    I am nervous about my chances for getting commended... would you guys say that it is possible to get commended for being in the 96th percentile, but only having a score of 197?
  • DelBoyandRodneyDelBoyandRodney Posts: 52Registered User Junior Member
    InvisibleMatter, I was in the 96th as well, but right under 200 and would like to know the same thing.

    I hate living in Maryland. I got a 215 (I should've studied..oh well). In most states this would qualify for semifinalist but in Maryland it has to be like a 221-223 cutoff are you serious
  • violinmaniac101violinmaniac101 Posts: 13Registered User New Member
    Invisible- I believe its the 96th onwards for commended, but I probably know as much as you do on this.
    Rodney- It depends on your score as well because top 50,000 is about 3.3% . Therefore, you must be in the top range of the 96-ers.
    Awesome- I feel you bro. The cutoff in NJ is the same and my friend had the same score.

    does being a commended student still look good on apps? it make me so mad because I took my SAT a month later and got a 2340 without studying...how do you go from a 215 to a 2340...

    Depends on how good the rest of your app is. If you're a star student, it probably doesn't make a difference. It'll never hurt, though.

    A 203 will make commended.

    I know what you mean...I got a 212 here in Virginia. Virginia's cutoff is pretty high (like Maryland) because of the schools near DC. I live next to the West VA border and it is a very different side of VA, but unfortunately the whole state is under the same cutoff. :(
