I'm currently a 10th grade brazilian student. I found out about Boarding Schools on May, and I'm really interested in applying to them. Although I'm not sure if I'll be accepted into one.
My grades are mostly higher than 80%, considering the education in Brazil I think it's great. But I don't have many extracurriculars, I love to play volleyball but I didn't have a chance to compete seriosly because there've always been better people than me in my class. I also pratice argumentative essays because it's a requirement if you want to attend a college in Brazil, and I'm praised by my teachers for these essays, but I just competed one time last year on behalf of my school against the schools in the same network as mine in my state, and I won the third place.
I don't consider myself a fluent in English but I've been taking an English course for the past two years and I finish it by the end of the year. In addition to the English course I'm studying by myself every day to improve my English and I'm also studying to take the SSAT, and I scored 2005 in my practice test, is it good?.
I intend to try my chance applying to some top BS, but also BS with a higher acceptance rate. It's my dream to attend one of these schools but sometimes I'm afraid of not being accepted. What do you think?
Ps. I'll also have to apply for financial aid.
ps2. Sorry for any mistakes I might have made.
