Nat'l Merit Qualifying Score?

<p>On my NMSC application thingy, they said you have to get a "Qualifying Score" to go from Semi-finalist to Finalist. Does anyone know what range a "Qualifying Score" might be? 1300? 1400?</p>

<p>Here's the thread from the classic forum that posted the qualifying scores by state earlier this year. It's pretty consistent but does move a point or two every now and then.</p>

<p>Thank you so much for digging that out for me, but I'm already a Semifinalist. What I'm looking for are the "Qualifying SAT I score" to become a FINALIST. They say you have to do well on the SAT I to go from Semifinalist to Finalist, and I want to know what range of SAT I scores would qualify me.</p>

<p>Don't worry about it too much. I don't know the exact score, but remember that 15,000 out of 16,000 semi-finalists become finalists. I always just assumed that all of them had high enough SAT scores to become finalists, but 1,000 were just too lazy to fill out the application on time</p>

<p>There isn't an official range of scores. From what I know they just want to make sure the PSAT wasn't a fluke (or worse). Also I think the main reasons semi's don't make it to finalist are bad grades and behavior issues such as being suspended or in trouble at school.</p>
