I live in California and the principal spoke to the students today who qualified for NM. Based on the upward trend of California's cutoff (last year was at 221) I'm a bit anxious. I scored a 220. To the experts out there, what are my chances of becoming a semi finalist?
Also, what is the benefit of becoming a nm semi finalist or commended? If we don't get scholarship money, do we still receive some sort of recognition?
