chances of getting into Exeter/Hotchkiss/Deerfield?
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me determine my odds of getting into Exeter, Andover, Hotchkiss, Deerfield, etc.
I just completed the 7th grade and my overall grades for each subject are as follows:
Strings: B (I play the cello)
My grades were all lowered because of my procrastination and lack of turning assignments in on time...
Extra information: I've been a Youth Ambassador for a non-profit organization for the past 2 years (it helps raise money for clean water and facilities in Africa), I'm very good at lacrosse, I'm an avid reader, and I sing and act on stage outside of school.
Please help! I feel like my grades significantly lowered my chances of getting into any of the above schools.
Forgot to mention: My family is from Eritrea (East African country), I'm very outgoing and can make friends easily (my teachers noted this in my report card). I'm popular (not in a bragging way) and people generally like me. I'm applying for financial aid and I currently go to an elite private school in the DC area.
*I'm actually a very good writer, but my time management issues lowered my grade
