Winning a National Merit Scholarship Competition depends on more than your PSAT score. Your academic record, SAT scores, extracurricular and leadership experiences, and an essay are also considered. Other factors include recommendations from your school, your school's curricula and grading system, and your state residency.
There are approximately 4.5 million Seniors in the USA. Approximately 1.6 million students enter the NMSC, and 15,000 are chosen as scholarship finalists…you do the math as to the percentage of who makes it to the finals.

Thanks for helping him realize that dream! We can do this together!!!! Oak Grove will be traveling down there again in June and hope that we can be a part of helping this Project thrive.
