<p>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...</p>

<p>ugh, now that I read my list, there's nothing exactly provoking about it compared to other competitors, is there? :(</p>

<p>You have very good stats. I think the ski club especially stands out. You seem like a well rounded student.</p>

<p>Doesn't matter what you will join btw. They care about what you've done.</p>

<p>I go to lville and trust me your fine.</p>

<p>If your grades, SSAT, application, and interview are as good as your ec's are then i wouldnt worry</p>

<p>feel free to pm me if you have any questions</p>

<p>thanks lville i probably will pm you :]
ImCrazy, I meant for 8th grade I'll join those things. before I go to high school.</p>

<p>Does anyone know if I can still participate in community service during the schoolyear? I have none! >:(</p>

<p>Yes as long as you do it before you send in your application.</p>
