    And thanks for the prompt to check my own DS' scores. 3 5s, a 5 sub score, and 4 on the test for the course he didn't take (Physics 2). Oh, and one of those 5s? He was failing the course so miserably we finally dropped it for credit and he audited it instead for the last 3 months. Like you, we have few things to brag about. So this was worth a couple fist-bumps.

    SAT IIs come out in a week.

    Bluemagic, where did you find the Class of '17 index scores for PSAT? I see estimates and judging from them, DS isn't getting anything in our state. But maybe there is still hope?

    (Since we have the same son, I'm waiting for the teacher who went with him on the trip this summer to offer to write a letter, too lol! Not holding my beach, though.)

    I got my information from several people on College Confidential. Semi-finalist dates vary by state and aren't officially released. Was told 209 is the cut-off nationally for commended. I can as/look around to find where that number is published.

    The answer is home schooled kids have been sent their commended reports. And a few schools have already told their students. Basically parents sharing the info online. Most schools doesn't announce this till the fall but commended is a national cut-off.

    SAT subject scores are out. 800 on Physics and Math 2. Meanwhile, failing the two online classes he's taking this summer to fulfill state graduation requirements. These are basic, low-level and if he doesn't pass he has to drop a course in the fall and spring and take them at school. Well, he could take it online again, but it would be an additional hour of work very day on top of a grueling school schedule, and besides, the school surely wouldn't approve it. Sigh. Insert fist bump and head-bang emojis here.
