I'm a 9th grader with scores of 125(AMC 10)/ 105.5(AMC12)/6 or 7 AIME. Will that be enough to go to USAMO?

I don't think so =/. Try harder next year :).

maybe, if the floor this year is a 6 or 7.

Oh yeah, I forgot that younger students' USAMO qualification standards are based solely on AIME scores.

I take it back. You have a decent shot :).

Here, you can figure out what you score was (these are unofficial answers from artofproblemsolving.com, but there are a lot of very intelligient people who are in consensus that they are correct):

1: 217
2: 201
3: 241
4: 086
5: 849
6: 882
7: 588
8: 199
9: 035
10: 817
11: 512
12: 014
13: 482
14: 813
15: 511

People are not sure what the floor will be, but the speculation is that is will be 7 or 8, maybe 6.
