Congratulations to Thomas Da Costa Lobo, ’21, who has been named Finalist in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Competition. Each year, about 1,500,000 students enter the competition by taking the PSAT/NMSQT in the fall of their junior year, and just 1%—about 15,000—make it to the finalist level, based on their PSAT scores, overall academic performance, and participation in school and community activities, along with other criteria.

From the pool of finalists, about 7,500 students will be selected as National Merit Scholars in the spring.
