Hello! I am extremely new to this site and am not quite sure I'm doing this right... but anyway, let's move on to the important stuff:
I will be going into the Seventh grade soon and want to apply to a few boarding schools next year (mainly PA, PEA, Blair Academy, and Choate) so I have a few questions:
Do I have to be good at sports to have a good chance of getting accepted?
Does the fact that I have been getting straight As since the 3rd grade matter? Yes? No?
I have done a lot of extracurricular activities and clubs in the past and plan on doing more this year; is this something boarding schools are looking for?
I don't recall getting any district-wide awards, but do awards I have won in school count (Spelling Bee, Speech, etc.)?
Are the SSATs anything like the EOGs or any similar standardized testing?
Do you have to pay back financial aid?
Any tips on applying next school year?
Tips for SSAT prep?
