edited November 2010 in Prep School Chances
I am applying for grade 9 at Emma Willard, Andover, Choate, and Taft. I currently go to a public school.

EC's
Student Government (I have been doing it for 3 years I am VP at my school and I have done a residential summer camp at Maryland Leadership Workshops)
Horseback Riding (3 years and I do horse shows. I work at my stable 6 hours each week for an extra lesson.)
Basketball (2 years)
Softball (5 years. Captain of my team and first baseman)
Volunteer Work (only a little bit)
Creative Writing (I've won a few awards for poetry and short stories)

Grades
I am in a rigorous Humanities program at my school and my grades are OK. I usually get a B or 2, though last year my final grade was straight A's (with exams put into it)

SSAT's
Taking it in 2 weeks but on my last practice test (in the SSAT booklet) I got:
95th percentile Verbal
98th percentile Quantitative
97th percentile Reading Comprehension
so that's like 97th percentile total

Interviews
Haven't done them yet but I can be slightly awkward I think they will be either good or OK

Essay's
They were OK to good. The writing wasn't perfect but it did show my character well.

Recommendations
I suspect: 1 amazing one, 1 great one, 1 okay one

So, how do you think my chances are? Include a URL to your thread if you would like be to chance you back!
