I am currently in 8th grade and I’m looking to apply for 9th grade at Pennington. I haven’t taken the SSAT yet but I plan on doing so in November. I have been studying but Verbal is definitely my weak spot. Any tips on how to improve and practice for that section? Reading comprehension and math is pretty good. What score should I aim for?
I play soccer for one of the best clubs in the country and I’d say I’m pretty good. Will that be helpful for getting in? I’ve heard that I should email the coach at the school but what should I say/put in the email? And should I email the JV or Varsity coach? Please let me know or give me some kind of email template for me to then personalize in my own way.
I’ve also had a perfect 4.0 all four years in middle school and I’ve had lots of leadership positions in school.
Let me know as it is the only school I am applying to. I have a backup plan but the coach already wants me to come and play for their school soccer team.
