Ask an Andover 9th guy...

<p>Hey, I'm a boarding student at Phillips Academy. My sports are basketball and lax. Shoot away...</p>

<p>Hello!</p>

<p>How did you get in?</p>

<p>Several tips?</p>

<ol>
<li>What kind of school did you go to before Andover? (public/ private?)</li>
<li>What kind of grades did you get?</li>
<li>What did you get on the SSAT?</li>
<li>Are you a legacy?</li>
<li>Did you apply for financial aid? If so, how much did you receive?</li>
<li>Do you have any "hooks"? (URM, know director of admissions, etc)</li>
<li>And what other EC's did you do (besides basketball and lax obviously) before you came to Andover?</li>
</ol>

<p>Were you a sports recruit?</p>
