<p>Hey, my name is Tom and I live in Maine. I have just begun to consider boarding prep schools for my secondary school education and it would be great if somebody would tell me what my chances are. I'm probably only going to be applying to Exeter because of the Harkness Method, but if people would tell me if my chances at equivalent places, that would be appreciated as well.</p>
<p>Here are my "stats"</p>
<p>I'm taking Honors Geometry (have already done Algebra 2 equivalent)
Was in National Spelling Bee (Only one from my state)
Got first in my state for the Johns Hopkins test in Math and Verbal 2 years in a row.
Lived in England last year and attended an English school.
My dad's boss is the head of the alumni association at Exeter (he suggested I go there).
Good writer (have been published w/ my dad)
Play basketball, baseball, tennis, and would like to start crew
Applying for Financial Aid
I am white</p>
<p>Anyway, thanks for any help that you can give me!</p>
