I am applying as a day student for 9th grade to Choate, Loomis, Taft, and Cheshire. This year, I have all A's so far and in the past 2 years I have had just a couple B-pluses. All of my report card comments are good, and my SSAT is pretty good as well. I have fabulous recommendations and my essays are very good too.
- Play for one of the top travel softball teams in the state
- Piano for 6 years, great recommendation from my teacher
- Clarinet for 4 years (concert band) , first chair, great recommendation from my teacher
- Recently joined travel volleyball
- Jazz band (piano)
- Chorus
- Middle School softball team
- Also read A LOT and love creative writing (actually did a workshop at Loomis)
- History Day Club last year

Subjective and other stuff:
- I have been in the high math class for two years, good rec from math teacher
- 2 year honor roll student
- Also recs from English, band, piano, school counselor
- Essay good
- All interviews were very good, especially Choate and Loomis

I also talked to the softball coaches at all 4 and they gave me recommendations to admissions. Same with arts at Choate and Cheshire

Tell me what you think? Thank you! 😀
