Hello, I’m an international’s student who is applying to boarding schools in the US this fall. The schools I am looking at are Phillips Exeter, St. Pauls, Deerfield, Berkshire, Brewster and a few others.
I am currently in grade 9 at an International school in Stockholm. Therefore I am going to apply for grade 10 entry fall 2021.
My grades converted to American grades are straight A’s except a B and a C that I am unable to improve until next term. My GPA is approximately 3.92.
I am a huge bookworm and usually read 2 books per week, but it varies from 1-3.
Dancing is one of my biggest passions and I have been doing it since I was 3 and I competed in disco dance for around 4 years.
I work at a nursing home as a leader for a team where I plan out activities for us to do with the elderly and I have more of an administrative position there.
I volunteer at my local church a lot at for example a klädbytardag (I think it’s jumble sale in English?) where I help organise but also donate clothes/toys for lower income families.
I am taking IGCSE math this year but won’t get the results until summer
I will partake in a one week language exchange to Germany with my school this spring.
On the CEF I got C2 and I have studied in English for three years so I’m fluent and have no problem understanding.
In Sweden there aren’t really any clubs/sports/competitions you can join in and my school gives out awards to 9th graders, and that is during graduation. We can’t study higher level classes either so I don’t really stand out that much
Is there a chance for me getting accepted?
I would appreciate advice for the SSAT’s, essays and interview as well!
