I want to offer my node's liquidity on the Lightning Pool, yet my node was not included in the Bos Score List of nodes eligible to try the initial release of Pool. Current list scores range from 54,545,454 to 100,000,000. There are 281 nodes.

I want to understand what are the scores of my nodes. How to calculate the score of a node?

There's no public formula, however the Lightning Labs devs who created this scoring methodology have provided the some hints behind it. In short the score represents the probability of a node receiving an average-sized payment. Daily, they analyze channel age, size, uptime, node capitalization, uptime, number of channels, neighboring node scores and fee rates. It's still evolving.
