This is what I have so far...i'll be applying for 9th grade, so I'll be starting eighth in august.

National Junior Honor Society
Honor Roll
Gifted since grade 7
Always had straight A's except my first B+ this year :(
Foreign Language (french - will be going to French II)
Algebra - going to Algebra II for 8th grade
Always participated in talent shows
Will join field hockey
Will join PAC (principal's advisory council)
Tap Dancing - 2 years
Piano - 8 years
Community Swim Team - 7 years
Tennis - 4 years
Band (flute - in 8th grade it'll be 4 years)
Will probably be in Jazz Band (piano - group of talented band students)
Chorus and Advanced Chorus (group of talented school singers)
Ski Club


Also, I'm not sure if these count.
Girl scouts - grades 4 through 6
Helped raise money for Chinese earthquake (EC, in grade 6)
Played in a few piano concerts
5th grade, won essay contest (either state or local, i forget)
7th grade, won 3rd in State - StockMarketGame (for gifted, teamed with three friends)

Pleaasee, this is my dream school. Also, if you wouldn't mind, what about some other top boarding schools? I think that I can get at least a 90th percentile on the SSAT's. Is the SSAT essay really that important -- like can it be a turn off if it's bad? And I'd love to hear some accepted Lawrentians' list and scores and EC's, and some who weren't accepted, if you don't mind please...
