    Have any of y'all taken the sat yet? I took it just for practice and got a 1440. I have a feeling I'll have trouble raising it up a lot more though :/ whatever I'll try to study the best that I can

    @pldmua2003 No, but that's a really good score and we haven't even started high school yet! By the time you're a junior you will have no problem getting a 1500+!

    I haven't taken the SATs yet, and I probably won't until junior year, I absolutely loathe standardized tests.

    My extracurriculars for freshmen year:

    Science Olympiad (my high school is a regular top 3 at nationals, it's going to be intense if I want to make the team by the end of sophomore year)
    USABO (the studying should go hand in hand with some of my Scioly events)
    Volunteering at a museum (not school-related)
    Art Club --> minimal effort, I'll probably just go to finished up art class projects anyway
    Squash/Badminton --> Literally the only two sports I play, since it's a winter sport, I probably won't do it since Science Olympiad will probably interfere with it
    Reading Olympics --> I read a lot anyway, I'll just replace the books I'd normally read with these books, no biggie
    Academic Decathlon --> Mainly doing it because the club leader made it sound super interesting, don't know if I'll stay, depends on time commitment
    Art Magazine --> Definitely, art is life

    I also took the SAT for CTY and I did awfully which I fully predicted—I accidentally skipped a math section by not fully managing my time, and went to the test with no breakfast and 5 hours of sleep. I got a 1220 (670 E, 550 M). I'm doing some test prep over the summer and believe that I can raise it to at least a 1400 by September, and hopefully 1540+ by junior year.

    I really don't want to take the SAT I think I will take the ACT. I just don't like how the SAT is set up. I've taken some parts of the ACT but not the whole thing at once.

    I'm excited to announce that I've been awarded the student with the highest achievement in my eighth grade class during my graduation. I didn't expect to get it!
