SSAT SCORES

Hi, As an international student, will scores of 99% Quantitative, 97% Reading, but 72% Verbal (93% overall) affect the chances of admissions to HADES schools? I am concerned about the gap between Verbal and Reading. I feel like Verbal measures luck more than skills and knowledge... I currently go to a boarding school in NE, and I'm considering re-applying to repeat my Sophomore year. Thank you in advance :)

    Well you are international so it's fine. I think one question these schools would have for you, is why you are leaving your current boarding school. However, your SSAT score doesn't not mean much as my brother got into exeter with 84% and my cousin went to andover with 81%. Both are not special atheltes or music prodigies

    @chocolate12345 these schools do not like transfers. It is a bit of a no no and is somewhat frowned upon. There have to be very very clear cut reasons and even that is not often enough.

    I know of at least two students from DD's school who are transferring to other boarding schools so it must happen. One is going to Groton and the other to St. George's School.
