Williston North Hamton School

<p>I<code>m interested in science, hockey and football. Don</code>t want a pressure cooker type school. Is this a good one to consider if my ssats are mid 80s?</p>

<p>haha, it's williston northampton**</p>

<p>and their average SSAT percentile tends to be (from what i've heard) low 60s, so i think their academics might not be challenging enough for you... eh. look into loomis, their average SSAT is like, in the low 80s, which i think would result in a better fit academically for you.
just my two cents :) good luck!</p>

<p>their academics actually are very challenging. </p>

<p>but yes northampton is one word :)</p>

<p>i applied to williston last yr. they have good food, everyone [for the most part] is very nice and happy, good sports[ football=GOOD], def. not a pressure cooker, v.v.v.v.v.v.v.v. good arts, not sure abt science but not an art centred school. Wonderful area- right next to northampton in the midst of the 5 college area.</p>

<p>highly recommended ;)</p>

<p>@Rad, you applied, which school did you end up going to? If not WNH, why?</p>

<p>*its not really referred to as WNH, just usually as Willis ton.</p>

<p>I got into NMH [Northfield Mount Hermon], but w/ no fin. aid. and w/l at Williston b/c [speculation] my first term grades were atrocious and i think they think i applied there as a safety. [which i did, initially, but expressed in interview how i preffered it over more prestigious schools [ie-exeter]]</p>

<p>@Rad, so I assume you`re going to be in the application pool again this yr. Do you have to reinterview w/ the schools you saw last yr. or are you applying elsewhere?</p>

<p>Yeah, if you apply again you have reinterview.</p>

<p>I'm not sure if I will apply there again next year. BUt you do have to go thru the entire process again.</p>
