Can my son appeal National Merit decision?
My son got a letter yesterday informing him that he did not advance to NM finalist standing. This is due to some bad grades (two D's) junior year. However, he was diagnosed with an unusual medical disorder and is now on medication which is helping him considerably. Would it be worth it to appeal this decision? They may not even reconsider him due to these grades, even though now he is being treated his grades have improved drastically.11 replies
