Hi, I am a current 8th grade boy applying to choate. I go to one of the best independant day schools in the country located close to choate and a lot of people from my school go to top boarding schools. I have had B's and B+'s my first term of eighth grade which is what they look at but last year i had mostly a-'s and a few b+'s. I am in honors english with a steady b+. I was on the ninth grade varsity basketball team as a seventh grader and I am on it this year again. I also row crew. My mom went to choate also. I am really into business and science which I wrote about in my application. I think i wrote a really deep and powerful application. My ssat scores were a bit low (70). I have my own website which focuses on cleaning up and maintaining the coral reefs around the world and I made a documentary about it. Choate is also the only school im applying to from a school where people apply to 6 or 7 boarding schools. I will also have good recommendations. Thanks!
