How important is National Merit Scholar?
I hate the SAT with a passion. I perform much better on the ACT, and plan to submit that as my only test score (along with SAT2s.) my school requires us to take the PSAT and SAT Junior year (I'm a rising junior,) so I could potentially qualify for National Merit Scholar. However when I try to study for the PSAT I literally fall asleep. The reading passages bore me and the math is super complicated. Is it a big deal if I don't makd national merit scholar?
