I know its a little late to talk about the 2007 PSATs but its been bugging me a lot. When I took the exam, I got really nervous for some reason, rushed and ran out of times in some sections, so I ended up with a score of 208 =( (which is probably below the national merit mark in florida). I was devastated because all of my other friends got over that and probably got national merit. I was wondering does not getting the national merit on your record hurts your chances of getting into prestigious schools like UPenn?
