My S21 also scored a 226 so we are feeling confident about NMSF, but he's having a rough semester. Will likely end up with a C in AP Spanish, 3 Bs in other AP classes, and 2 As (6 AP classes total plus band and speech/debate). He's had nearly straight As the last 2 years. Also very active and successful in band and speech/debate and a 1580 SAT score. Is it likely the C will throw him out of the NMF competition, especially given how much he took on this year? He has a tutor now and we hope next semester he will pull his grades up.

My son is also having rough semester. He is taking 6 APs, most likely end up with B in AP Calculus, 5 As in APUSH, CS, Biology, Micro/Macro, English and A- in Latin. Is the B throw him out of the NMF competition or future college app? I know a kid got rejected in every big name school because a "B" in his grade, even with outstanding records, NMF, national debate winner..... he ended up going to state university.
