I just did a practice upper level SSAT and got 732 Reading, 766 Verbal, and 794 Quantitative. My total was 2292. I'm not sure what percentiles these are because I don't know how to calculate them, but my SSAT prep booklet said that 50th percentile for 8th grade was 647 Reading, 660 Verbal, and 676 Quantitative.
Since it's 4 in the morning where I live I think I could probably do better if I have more sleep. But based on these scores, what boarding schools do I have a chance at getting into?
I'm really interested in Mercersburg Academy in PA, what's my chance? Also Choate, Concord Academy, Deerfield, and maybe Andover or Exeter (might be a challenge i know).
I go to an independent school for gifted kids and I've gotten straight A's my whole middle school (in lower school we didnt really have letter grades but I still got "meets expectations on my report card every trimester lol). I'm starting 8th grade on Tuesday! I've played percussion in the school band since 4th grade, and participated in Track and Cross Country since 5th grade (although other than that I'm not particularly athletic. I did crew for a few months but couldn't stand waking up that early). I've been taking piano lessons since I was in 2nd grade, and as for clubs I'm in a math club, debate team, science olympiad, creative writing club, band, and an environmental club. (all of these since 6th grade). I volunteer at an animal shelter on weekends, does this help? I'm a pretty strong writer so I think I can write a good essay.
Another question...is ethnicity taken into account by these schools? I'm half Korean half white, I was hoping that could help me, lol.
