National Merit and National Achievement

<p>When should students start learning if they are a national merit or national achievement semifinalist? I am asking about this years juniors.</p>

<p>They will be notified (usually) by their schools early in the fall semester of the senior year.</p>

<p>Sorry about a dumb question: Is everyone who takes the test eligible or do you have to fill in the bubble for "let me know about scholarships"?</p>

<p>Every one who takes the test and is a junior and U.S. citizen is eligible.</p>

<p>Thanks. That's what I thought but I had never seen it written down anywhere.</p>
