I am applying for Exeter and Andover in the fall of 2017 for 9th grade.
I took my SSAT’s on December 10th, but did not do well at all. Do keep in mind I am Mexican, especially when you see the verbal/reading scores.
Reading- 674 (64%)
Verbal- 668 (53%)
Math- 779 (95%)
Overall- 2121 (78%)
My current grades range from 92% to 99% (A’s)
My grades are as follows:
Science 8- 97% (A)
Spanish 8- 95% (A)
Social Studies 8- 98% (A)
English 8- 93% (A)
Art 8- 96% (A)
Drama 8- 99% (A)
Algebra II Honors (10th grade)- 92% (A) (it will be bumped)
Band 8- 96% (A)
PHE 7/8- 99% (A)
In my school, we take a standardized test called the MAP’s; I got the following:
Math- 99th percentile
Reading- 96th percentile
Language- 96th percentile
Science- 92nd percentile
I do the following extra-curricular activities, including sports:
Model United Nations (MUN)- I have been a delegate, a chair, and a moderator. I have participated in in-school and out-of-school simulations.
Band- I have been in band since 6th grade, and I play the Baritone/Euphonium
Ambassadors- I am in my school’s ambassador program. It is based on helping new students from different cultures adapt, and raising school spirit.
Global Issues Network (GIN)- This program is about picking a problem in the local community, and finding ways to fix it. Last year it was making biogas.
Public Speaking- I entered two contests. Although these public speaking contests were in Spanish, I also know how to speak well in English.
Community Service- I have been part of an organization called Niños en Accion (NEA) for over 6 years, where I have done every type of community service imaginable.
Golf- I have played golf for two years, and have been in the top 5 places in tournaments in about 5 of these tournaments.
I am open to playing soccer (I played it for about 5 years in elementary) and swimming (I really like it). I also really like skiing.
I was accepted into camp BizSmart(entrepreneurial camp) and was CEO of the business(I went in the summer leading into 6th grade)
I was accepted into camp SIG Yale (academic camp) and got very good reviews from teachers (can be given upon further request as login is needed). I attended classes that focused on math, theoretical physics, business math, and international relations.
I think I did very well in my interviews, especially that of Exeter.
I think I am doing pretty well with my essays.
I think my recommendation letters are superb, especially since one of them was written by my superintendent.
Please tell me my chances of getting into either one of the two schools mentioned.
