MBA's 10 National Merit Semi-finalists Most in Nashville
Ten MBA seniors were selected as semi-finalists for the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Competition. The ten semi-finalists accounted for the most by any school in Nashville, and a tie with MUS with the most in the state for an independent school. Congratulations to the following students: Wyatt Bettis, Andrew Bulgarino, Tuneer Ghosh, Ethan Lilly, Sam Meacham, Joseph Moore, William Myers, Baylor Sai, Colin Tang, and Jason Zhu.
This year there are approximately 16,000 National Merit Semifinalists across the country chosen from the 1.6 million entrants in the competition. These high school seniors have an opportunity to continue for more than $30 million in National Merit Scholarships to be awarded in the spring of 2021. About 90 percent of the students selected as Semifinalists are named Finalists, and approximately 7,500 will earn National Merit Scholarships.
