Nervous about March 10th. This is my only shot and my grades are not so strong...

<p>I never said it would make me "smart". I don't even know where you got that from. But boarding school would help me grow as a person as well as open up many opportunities I don't have at my current school. Unfortunately, by next year I will have exhausted my schools current curriculum, so it makes sense that I would want to board so I can learn and experience more.</p>

<p>Considering your situation, I guess you should. But from my perspective, I want to get a start in REAL life as early as possible. Like you, I'm young for my grade. If I go to a college in the UK and get my master's in the States, then I'll be done with education (or I hope I would) by the time I'm 22, and I can get started on everything (I consider 40 to be old. Hahaha. So yeah, you can see where I'm coming from.)</p>
