Same question.

Short answer: no.

Long answer: the College Board sends out the names and addresses of kids who scored in a given range of PSAT scores to colleges requesting them. They don't know your exact score, but if they are mailing you, it does tell you that it wasn't too shabby.

Then again, your school might do what mine does, which is to attach all of your testing history to your transcript that it sends out to colleges. This includes ITED, WASL, SAT, ACT, SAT II, AP, and even the PSAT and PLAN I think. I doubt colleges look at them, though. If you are really worried I would look into this but chances are that your scores will never be seen.

well most high schools put your PSAT score on your transcript so they will see it.

I don't know if I'd say "most" High Schools. Some, perhaps -- but definately not "most".
