All of the students were first identified through exceptionally high scores on the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which they took as juniors. 

They had a record of high academic performance, were endorsed and recommended by their school principal, and had earned high SAT scores confirming their earlier qualifying test performance.
