National Achievement Finalists/Semifinalists

are there any national achievement finalists who do not mind sharing their psat scores with me? i feel that I may qualify for a certain scholarship at FAMU and I am curious as to whether or not i will get the maximum amount for the scholarship, which to do so, one needs to be a national achievement finalist.

thanks.

    National Achievement semifinalist status is based on region. You haven't provided enough information to answer that question. Plus, no one will be notified of their status until September or October.

    BTW. Can anyone define "****" for me?

    I got a 230 on my PSAT and was a National Achievement finalist. (Though I'm going to community college so the scholarship is basically useless >_>). Oh, and a **** is someone who instigates or provokes people to giving inflammatory responses.

    I got a 188 on the PSAT with a 1980 on the SAT and was a finalist. I was offered the full FAMU scholarship for it (with a laptop and some stipend money), but I'm pretty sure the one I received was specifically for Florida residents so I'm not sure if it's the same one you're talking about.

    Weird, I got a 185 (I think. That's whay I remember, but a counselor once told me I got a 198) on my PSAT, and was only considered a National Achievement Outstanding Participant.

    Now, I know it is based on region, but did I seriously miss it by only that couple amount of points?

    *shakes my head*

    I got a 211 on the PSAT and a 2270 on the SAT and was a National Achievement Scholar; my region was that of the Northeast (or maybe Mid-Atlantic - I'm not too sure).

    Hope this helped. :o

    I was a finalist from the Southeast and I was a finalist. I think I got a 194.
  • dignified1dignified1 Registered User Posts: 680 Member
    ^ and ^^, when were you notified that you made the cut? Before or after you were notified of National Merit standing?
  • LivingOxymoronLivingOxymoron Registered User Posts: 216 Junior Member
    Just reread my message and I sound like an idiot. Oh well...I found out around September 2009 which was maybe 5 months after I took it? Something close to that.

    198 should be fine. 184 ( or was it 186?) in California was not for class of 2008.

    Do you guys think a 209 in NY would make semi?
  • CasaAtreidesCasaAtreides Registered User Posts: 256 Junior Member
    ^It should. I know someone who got semifinalist status with lower scores.
