    A resume does not provide any information to base an answer on. What are you looking for? Large/small school, rural/city, teacher/student ratio, boarding/day...? What kind of high school experience are you looking for and why? Start there.

    What I meant with the post was for it to be more of like a chance me post(Like finding out how competitive I am as an applicant), probably should've written that. Thanks anyway!

    No one can chance anyone for any school--and you didn't even provide a list of the type of schools you are planning to apply to. Put your best application forward and let the chips fall where they may.

    You will probably need to take the SSAT test, not the SAT. However, some schools may be willing to take an SAT for a ninth grade applicant.

    I am unable to take the ssat here but most schools seem to accept the sat for 11th grade, so I figured It wouldn't be a problem to send the sat for the 10th grade application.
