Phillips Andover & Exeter

<p>Hi! I am applying to Phillips Academy Andover & Exeter this year (entering 2014-15). What are some things that I can do to assure my acceptance. I have had all A's in middle until now 8th grade. I can get great recommendations too. In addition, I have many extracurricular activities..NJHS,student council, community service etc. What is the major thing that plays a role in my acceptance. I still didn't take my SSAT. I think i can get 75% and higher on it. If i get a bad percentile on it, will it ruin my chances?</p>

<p>there’s a prep school admissions forum where you could probably get better answers than on this forum</p>

<p>Phillips Academy is basically the Harvard University of Prep Schools - any small infraction or flaw could probably jeopardize your acceptance, and even if your record is gleaming and your stats are stellar, there’s still a pretty big chance you won’t get accepted. Just prepare for the SSAT and try your best.</p>

<p>You have good stats, and with everything above, I’m sure you’ll be able to get above 80 on the SSAT. Good luck! :slight_smile: </p>
