Discus: What Are My Chances?: January 2003 Archive: Boarding School Acceptance High School
By Perot on Wednesday, January 29, 2003 - 11:50 pm: Edit

I am in 8th grade and am applying as a boarding student to Exeter, Andover, St. Pauls and Groton. I scored in the 96th Percentile on the SSAT. My school does not give grades but if i averaged the comments I would get a GPA of around 3.2. and I am in one of the most competative schools in the city. I participate in Skiing, Ultimate Frisbee and Tennis sportswise. I also particate in Drama and have played large roles in "The Pirates of Penzance", "Iolanthe", "Macbeth" and "Men at Arms". I am a fairly competative chess player and a Guitar player. I was wondering if anyone can give me an estimate as to what my chances of getting into those schools are. Thank You.
