Are my ISEE scores high enough???

edited June 2013 in Prep School Chances
My ISEE Scaled Scores are basically rated as...

Math:
8(92%) and 9(99%)

Reading/LA:

6(75%) and 6(65%)

I generally make 90+, maybe once a semester i make an 85+.

I enjoy swimming and volleyball.

Oh and i am applying for 8th Grade.

i think i was great at the interview, i spoke out more than the other kids i was more "social".

I also think that i had some great teacher recommendations, but i might not know so.. i think we should see what would happen on worst case scenerio.

I am asian too just saying...

So what would my chances of getting into St Marks School of Texas?

    how strong is the school that you are coming from public, private, catholic.
    and how well regarded is it this all plays into it. also you really did not give enough info for anyone to accurately chance you.

    what info do you need and i also come from a public school it isn't as high as rice middle but its like 2nd place in academics i think if you comapre it.

    decent i guess 50%
    interview is make or break for you...
    but again i could be completely off-base.
    i just have a bunch of friends who went to greenhill
