Your test scores are awesome. But a strong candidate for top boarding schools also needs a flawless transcript for the past three academic years, strong recommendations, demonstrated passion and achievements in selected areas (arts, sports, community service, debate, etc), and your commitment to your community and your spirit of service to others. More importantly, you will need to demonstrate all your strengths in your application materials, essays and in the interview. Good luck!
The test scores are impressive. The student can go to a good boading school if he or she has other distinguishing features ie music, sports, community service and etc. Also, the interview is an important indicator in the admission process. Good luck.
