I applied to a small number of prep schools, now I'm sitting around waiting for answers (which is the worst part).
SSAT - took once a few months ago - scored in upper 80's, I was a little disappointed but decided not to take it again (would be happy to explain).
GPA - 4.0 unweighted (all A's and A+'s for all years)
Excellent interviews, essays, letters of rec.
Many EC's: Play an instrument, study multiple foreign languages, five years of swim team, lots of volunteering for various causes. A few good awards. Will need partial financial aid.
I realize that these are just stats and do not tell the whole picture, and I realize that these cold stats are solid but not a slam dunk. The difference will be in the details, the things that might make me stand out in the essays and interviews or letters of rec... But based on the cold stats, what do you think? Since we are all sitting around nervously waiting anyway. In any event, no matter what the outcome, I'm glad I went through the process because I learned a few thing about myself.
