Hi, I am currently in 8th grade, attending a private international school in South Korea. I am applying for Lawrenceville, Deerfield, Hotchkiss, Andover, Exeter, Cate, Hill, (maybe) Episcopal, St mark, Thatcher.
I am Asian, I have lived in South Korea ever since I was born and I am applying for boarding schools in the school year 2022~2023 school year, for grade 9.
*Our school does not have A, B, C type of grades, we have levels of 1~8, 1 being the lowest, 4 average, and 8 highest.
All my grades are in the 7 and 8 levels
- Club founder, Editorial of our school’s newspaper
- Service Council (basically the head of student service-learning)
- Student council member
Varsity swim team for 2 years
KAIAC 1st place award
School Record holder for 100m I.M
(got a reply from the Hill school’s head varsity swim coach, wants a zoom meeting after I schedule one with the admissions office)
Participates in cross country and tennis as well (intermediate level)
-Especially interested in Writing
Awards: Immerse Education 2020, Immerse Education 2021, IYNN 2019: Oxford Youth Writing Challenge
SSAT (not planning on taking it this year), TOEFL (preparing, taking the test at around December, scores would not be available for my application)
I have not scheduled any, should I do that after I update my written application, “Candidate profile”? What questions should I prepare for?
I have not started yet, however, I am confident with this area.
Not received any yet. I have decent relationships with most of my teachers.
WHEN SHOULD I ASK FOR THEM? Would November be considered “too late”??
Whom should I ask for?
PLEASE HELP ANSWER THE QUESTIONS above and PROVIDE SOME ADVICE
