Is it bad if you don't take the NMSQT?


I am a junior and I missed the deadline to sign up for the NMSQT. I want to go to a large public university, so I need to be competitive. Are colleges going to see that I chose not to take it, and take someone that did over me?

No, you do not submit the score to colleges, it is only a practice SAT and the only thing it is used for is the National Merit Scholarship competition, which is extremely rare to receive.

Agree and also large public schools by themselves aren't selective for example Kansas is a large public school and they admit about 90% of all applicants. Oregon admits about 80% so public schools by themselves don't equate to competitiveness. UCLA is selectice but large public schools are not automatically difficult to get into. Hope this helps.
