Dear 100 Hour Board,
OK, sorry, let me clarify. I'm the National Merit Semifinalist. When I called the scholarship office, I asked about being a Finalist. The girl said to put some other college's name down as my first choice. I specifically said, "so basically you're saying that National Merit means nothing to BYU?" and she said "yes". She said that as of recently, their "scholarship matrix" thingy with the ACT and GPA scores are all that matter anymore. I understand a little bit better, with the whole tithing thing, but am still a little frustrated.

- Me, who is confused because my Dad also got a full ride to BYU for National Merit

A: Dear Times, they are a'changin,

Thanks for the clarification, glad you understand more and sorry for the frustration. Welcome to paying for college like the rest of us.
