So I'm filling out the common app, and I was wondering if there are any additional steps that I need to take when listing a NMSC award? Do colleges verify it themselves or do I need to do something? I searched the NMSC's website and couldn't find any answers. Thanks

nope. You just list it in the award/honors section under Education. No verification necessary.

Did you get commended or semifinalist, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks. And I got commended. Do you happen to know what the cutoff was for semifinalist?

It varies by state. My state has the highest cut off, so I ended up with commended as well :(
