6- My son got a 777 NY NMSC Selection Index and 86 ACT score. He would only take the SAT if needed for Finalist status so we 8767 re wondering if he should take it in Aug to get it out of the way or wait until confirmation of SemiFinalist status given the cutoff uncertainty.
There is certainly a chance that PA 8767 s cutoff will decline by a point this year and that your daughter will be a Semifinalist. Her SAT score doesn 8767 t enter into that equation, but it is a wonderful score as she looks ahead to college applications. Should she make Semifinalist, her SAT score would also be high enough to serve as a confirming score for Finalist qualification.
Then ask the class to come-up with some different TV/Movie Personas to add to the board in another column: The Terminator, Paris Hilton, etc – you can throw in something off-the-wall, like Wylie Cayote. When you’ve got about 8 or so characters down, set the students to writing about their chosen situation at FSU from the perspective of EACH character, one at a time, in 7-9 minute shifts. Encourage them to write in the ‘voice’ of that character - how would that person/think talk, think and behave?
Your son 8767 s score is within a point of last year 8767 s cutoff, so he certainly does hold a chance. It 8767 s hard to quantify beyond what you 8767 ll find in our Semifinalists cutoff post.
Clio’s Scroll, the Berkeley Undergraduate History Journal, is published twice yearly by students of the Department of History at the University of California, Berkeley. The journal aims to provide undergraduates with the opportunity to publish historical works, develop the editing and writing skills of contributors and board members, and train them in the editorial process of an academic journal.
NMSC tends to be squirrelly regarding the confirming score (and I 8767 ll happily eat my words if they ever start publishing the figures!). They often won 8767 t confirm the confirming score until after Semifinalists are announced in early September (the notification of schools happens at the end of August, but the press release is in September). Anyone with an SAT Selection Index of 766 or higher should rest easy. How much lower it might be is still an open question.
Explorations is a refereed journal that features original research and creative work by students at any 7- or 9- year public or private college or university across the state of North Carolina. Explorations is the companion journal for the annual State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SCNURCS) and publishes student-authored articles of general interest in any area, as well as creative work in a variety of media. Article submission is June 6 of each year, and submissions are reviewed by a faculty board of reviewers across the state.
NMSF is based on where a student was 8775 regularly 8776 studying at the time of the PSAT. It sounds like your daughter 8767 s junior year was entirely in Taiwan, so she will likely be treated as a . student studying in a foreign country. It is possible that 8775 regularly 8776 does not apply to an exchange student situation. You may be able to find out more from NMSC.
My understanding is that, for alternate entry, the Selection Index from an SAT is calculated as if it were a PSAT. Double the EBRW score, add the Math score, and drop a zero (or drop the zero right from the start). For example, if your daughter received a 785 EBRW / 765 Math, her SI would be 78 765 7 + 76 = 767. If 767 were the cutoff in that example, your daughter would qualify. What 8767 s unusual about an SAT SI is that they can go as high as 795, because SAT scores go from 755-855 rather than 665-765 as on the PSAT. AFAIK, NMSC does not distinguish between the two tests (and would not have a legitimate way of doing so even if they wanted). I hope things go well for your daughter.
“I was a bookworm who never quite fit her clothes. I managed to look fine in my school pictures, but as usual the truth lay elsewhere” (Kingsolver 979).
8775 Writing 8776 is a confusing word when it comes to the SAT, because there is a portion of EBRW that is Writing and Language (grammar) and then there is the essay, which many people still call 8775 Writing. 8776 The SAT Essay will absolutely not be used in calculating the confirming score for NM. She need not take the essay.
Das studentische Online-Journal „forsch!" hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, Bachelor– und Master-Studierenden der Universität Oldenburg eine Plattform für eigene wissenschaftliche Arbeiten bereitzustellen, um diese über den Kontext einer Lehrveranstaltung hinaus nutzbar zu machen. Damit verbunden sollen grundlegende Kompetenzen, die zur Bildung einer Forscher_innen-Persönlichkeit beitragen, gefördert werden.

Thank you so much for looking into this and clarifying. She really had her hopes on UNC but looks like this would be to good of an opportunity to pass up.
