New Junior = Hell? Switching from English boarding school

<p>I'm currently at an English boarding school, and I live in overseas. I've been to an english boarding school for three years now but I'm deciding to switch to an American boarding school.</p>

<p>I get good grades but the problem is that I don't feel a sense of community here and the sports are limited. It also gets very boring because theres nothing to do. My school is ranked one of the top in the UK and my college advisor had said that I have a better chance of getting into a university because I 'stand out' more. </p>

<p>What are your feelings? Do you think it is a good idea? Would it be too hard to cope? And do you know anything about deerfield and choate? Which one is better?</p>

<p>Thank you very much for your help!</p>
