    My 8th-grade grades are basically the same as my 7th-grade grades, lol. Except for French, cause I took korean, where I got As all semesters.
    And Math where I got two As, and 1 A+. Also, I'm too lazy to put my 8th-grade grades...

    EC'S) Choir 4 years
    Piano 7 years
    Oboe 4 years, 3rd oboe in my city youth orchestra. There are 7 oboes.
    Tennis 2 years, not very good though, it's just for fun.
    Part of school Newspaper.
    Part of creative writing group.
    Operatics, I've been in 3 operas and have had numerous solos.
    Part of math club, but am not very good at it. I made varsity once but sadly had to back out as I had to prepare for a La Boheme performance.

    Awards) Took the AMC8 in 6th grade, and got a 16, took it again in 7th and got a 19.
    Robotics 4th place out of about 30 in a 6th to 10th-grade competition in my area.

    Essays) I think they were fine, I tried being different, so for 2/4 of the schools, I used a personal narrative for my essays.


    Strengths) I'm really C O N F I D E N T
    Weaknesses) Sometimes I eat Ice cream straight out of the carton, also my grades.

    Ps: I share a laptop with my brother, MOIDIN. So if the moderators see multiple accounts under my name, one's his! We have recently banned him from going on college confidential, after he made a post asking about college, when he's in 6th grade. We didn't want him to get overly stressed so we just aren't letting him on anymore. Sorry for the unrelated comment, just don't wanna get banned!

    Also I don't remember my ssat average too well, it's anywhere from 93rd%-96th. Just thought I needed to state that.
