Hi, I'm a Thai student (dont know if that will be a URM hook or not) applying to 10th grade at Choate, SPS, Taft, Cranbrook, and LFA.
My SSAT score is
Vocab 707, 71%
Math 791, 92%
Reading 695, 75%
Overall 2193, 83%
I'm currently in a prep school in Minnesota
I've earned a 4.0 GPA since 7th grade
My current courses are:
Physics (top in my class)
Algebra II (took geometry last year, 2 years faster than most students)
Knowledge Bowl, placed 1st in the first meet we had
Science Bowl, only 9th grader qualified, team competing at state level this Jan
Investment Club, Winner of the Virtual Stock Market
Basketball (last year)
Joining Track this spring
Also, I'm getting a rec from a director of a top university in Thailand to SPS.
Honestly, what are my chances?
Do you think that 83% SSAT will weigh me down? (English is my second language)
