I'm currently a sophomore, with top academics and extracurriculars.
I have a strong desire (for many reasons, which I won't get into here) to complete the last two years of my high school experience at a boarding prep school. However, the deadlines for most have already passed, and I have not applied to any (again, for many reasons, which I won't get into here).
Therefore, would it be at all plausible to complete my junior year at my current school, and then repeat it at a prep school? I would of course take different courses and broaden my extracurricular base. While some schools take wait list applications, financial aid would not be available, I have been informed.
Is this crazy? Could it benefit me? Would it just be a waste of time and money?
