Will colleges like this?

<p>Today at school, they announced that I was in the top 5% of the 120,000 African Americans that took the PSAT. I'm a senior, but it took this long to receive the results. I was wondering if colleges will like this a lot, or will they just disregard it as "just another award"?</p>

<p>I'm applying to mostly top schools, so will this even matter to them?</p>

<p>Also, I can't remember the title exactly. They just received the information, and I will get the official info soon. Also, they're going to announce it at the end of the year banquet for academic awards and scholarships.</p>

<p>My 2nd question was: are there any schools that offer scholarships for this?</p>

<p>Nope, it won't matter much.</p>

<p>Even the National Merit Semifinalist status will not matter much.
If you're applying to the TOP TOP schools.</p>

<p>Some schools will offer scholarships for Semifinalist status. Ask your counselor about it.</p>

<p>Congratulations - nice accomplishment. It certainly won't hurt to note it on your college applications!</p>

<p>It won't hurt, but it won't be like, say, the RSI to colleges. I believe you will get some sort of reward for this. I believe there's a scholarship associated as well - specifically for African Americans who do well on the PSATs. It's kind of like national merit. </p>

<p>If you're applying to Harvard, I think lacking it might look bad, so by all means put it on all your college applications.</p>

<p>I think it's very good, and you should include it on your app. But I think your SAT score matters more. How'd you do and was it consistent with your PSAT score predictors?</p>

<p>My SAT was 100 points higher than my PSAT. My M and V were 1250 on the PSAT. My SAT was 1350. I'm retaking it in Nov for 1400+.</p>

<p>what was ur psat score for math, verbal, and writing?
(i wanna see if i have a chance in the national achievement scholarship.)</p>

<p>Not very good</p>

<p>M and V were 125 and W was 62</p>

<p>187</p>

<p>SAT: 1350 (don't think that matters but I'll just include it)</p>
