I’m applying for grade 9. SSAT is 98th percentile (highest is 99th, lowest is 93rd). My grades are mostly A’s and A+'s, I did get one A- in gym. I’m in the math club and chess club (3rd in the tri-school competition) and started the GSA (gay-straight alliance) in grade 7 (mostly so I could stay inside for recess so I didn’t talk about this much in my application).
I do volleyball, I’m on the team at school (not very competitive but we do play against other schools). I do math contests too, got a 23 on the AMC 8 last year. I go to a public (catholic, but I’m not religious) school in western Canada (I’ll be an international student), nothing special.
I’m a half-chinese, half-indian girl. I’m applying for financial aid. My parents make 100,000 a year but my dad doesn’t work. I have a sister, she’s 2 so she doesn’t go to school. I’ll be an international student (from Canada)
I haven’t applied yet, I’ll be applying for the school year after next (2021-2022). Is it worth it to apply? I’m worried because I don’t do a lot of extracurriculars and sports so should I try to do more in the upcoming school year?
I won’t be able to read teacher reccomendations but I think they’ll be good. Essays will probably be good too.
