Brooke, MHS '15

“In addition to a full ride at the University of Minnesota, I was one of the youngest full-time, paid summer 2016 interns at Optum Health. My National Merit Finalist standing was an important part of their hiring decision. It’s a big thing.”

Arjun, MHS '16

“Being a National Merit Finalist definitely opened up many doors for me in the college admissions process. The half-tuition scholarship and an additional $1,000 per year from National Merit was a major influence in my decision to go to USC.”

Sabrina, MHS '16

“I received a corporate-sponsored National Merit scholarship worth $10,000 and full-tuition offers from multiple universities for all four years. Do well on the PSAT to achieve this status and many opportunities will open up to you.”
