I plan to apply to Choate Rosemary Hall and Hotchkiss (and possibly Andover, too) next year, for my junior year- I'm currently a freshman- and was wondering what my chances of getting in are.
My grades this year were good, with the exception of my Geometry grade.
Honors History- A
Honors English- A
Spanish 2- A
I plan to work extra hard next year to get straight A's. I haven't taken the SSAT yet, but I took an SAT II in Biology and got a score > 730. This may sound immodest, but I'm the best writer in my grade and I'm not too worried about the application essays.
I've played violin for 6 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. In addition to my school's orchestra, I've participated in and earned awards from local youth, all-county, and all-state orchestras. I definitely plan to continue my musical studies at Choate/Hotchkiss. I play soccer and plan to continue that, too.
I'm going to attend Yale's Ivy Scholars Program this summer, too, which I'm really excited about.
As for community service, I've volunteered well over 100 hours at the local hospital. I also volunteer as violin instructor and secretary of a program that brings a free music education to inner-city kids who would normally not have access to one.
I really, really like both schools- I especially like the Arts Concentration program at Choate and the Human Neuroanatomy/Biomedical Ethics course offered at Hotchkiss (I'm thinking of going into medical school).
Anyway, I know its hard to judge if someone could get in since the applicants change every year and there's limited space in each class, but your insight would be really appreciated
Thank you so much!
