Choate, Taft and Peddie Chances?

edited March 2013 in Prep School Chances
Hello!
I have applied to three schools and I was wondering what chances I might have!
On the SSAT's, I got an 86% average which I was fairly proud of.
My grades in 6th/7th grade weren't the best because I was relentlessly bullied which caused me to pull out from the world a bit, but I'm getting A's and B's (and one C in spanish)

My EC's are:
-Acting
-Singing
-Dance
-Skiing
-Tennis
-Swimming
-Sailing
As a singer, my voice was featured on a national PSA for educating human right's for kids which I thought would be important to include as it was an alternative way of doing community service rather than helping at a soup kitchen, cleaning a beach, etc.

I consider myself a fairly dedicated student and the school I'm at now is the oldest in my state and one of the more rigorous ones. However, the upper school is not as good as the middle and lower schools (Drugs, alcohol, sex [which obviously I will encounter at any school]) and it just wasn't the right fit. I'm not a genius, but I try hard and I hope that schools will appreciate that.

Oh and I almost forgot! I'm the co-editor of my middle school newspaper and I was a principal role in the film 'Here Comes The Boom'!

Thank you!
Blaine =)

    You'll be accepted because of your dedication to Theatre. I hear that Choate has a great Arts Concentration Program that you might be interested. Just really stress your dedication to acting and singing, because that's what makes you stand out.

    Best of luck,

    Hi TheatreGeek412,

    I think you have a good chance of being accepted. I'm a sophomore at Choate, and I remember going through the whole application process. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me!! I'll be glad to answer.
