Chances of admission to Salisbury School, Loomis Chaffee, and St.George's

I am applying to Salisbury, Loomis, and St.George's and I know the school admissions are very competitive and I want to know my chances. I am currently in tenth grade but, if I attend I will be doing a repeat year. I have decent grades around a 3.5 GPA. I did okay on my ISEE scoring a 7 and a 6 on my English portions and scoring very poorly on my math sections scoring 2 on both. I have told the admissions staff that I do struggle with math but am a straight A student other then that. My interviews went very well they were impressed with my character and my knowledge about the schools. I should have three really good recommendations and one decent one. I also felt that all my short answers and essays were good. Also, nobody from my state is attending any of the schools I am applying to so could that help with admission. I am involved in activities such as Boy Scouts, FCA, and lacrosse. I have received awards in these activities and hold held leadership positions as well. I also am a prospective lacrosse player for the schools, I have worked very closely with the lacrosse coaches and they know me so could that also help my chances with admission. I am applying for aid and, I have heard stories that since the applicant was applying for aid they have been wait listed or denied. Overall, I just want to know my chances of getting into any of these schools.

    @coolbeans6, my son is a junior at Salisbury. He was a regular (non-repeat) applicant for 9th grade and similarly was weak on the math side, and admissions overlooked that. It’s probably not fatal. If you are serious about lacrosse, Salisbury’s program is on a different level than Loomis’s, though Loomis’s program is good (DS has a number of friends who play for Loomis). Which is to say that your upward mobility in the program would be better at Loomis (and presumably St. George’s); at Salisbury it’s more dependent upon who is recruited each year.

    Good luck to you, and I would be happy to answer any questions that I can about Salisbury. My son loves it.

    You sound like a good candidate and one who has selected your schools thoughtfully. I suspect you will have options on M10. Guessing 2 out of 3.
