Congratulations to MTA Junior Joseph Friedman, who has been named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.  Joseph joins 16,000 other semifinalists around the country in competition for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships to be offered next spring.  Approximately 1.6 million Juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2018 National Merit Scholarship program by taking the 2016 PSAT.  The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than 1% of U.S. high school Seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. The number of Semifinalists in each state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating Seniors.
