I’m no genius… can I still get into IMSA?





I'm a home-schooled 7th grade girl. I went to a private school for the past three years. My math history is terrible- in algebra I had 3 different teachers, all terrible, and 5 teachers in algebra, all terrible as well. We finished about 2/3 of the pre-algebra book and <1/2 of the algebra book. My algebra classes left me more confused than informed. I have ADD, but my parents did not get my accommodations through in time for me to get special accommodations on the SAT. I took a diagnostic SAT, and my scores were as followed:Math: 630Critical Reading: 600 (though my best score so far was 650)Writing: 560 (though my Kaplan Instructor hates me and purposely marked down my essays to 3 pts., when they really deserved 5), though my best score was 650.I also took the diagnostic test late at night (5:30-9:45), and got really tired by the last 4 sections. It was a Kaplan SAT. Are the Kaplan SAT's accurate?Other notes:I take 2 classes at the local high school and am currently the youngest student taking classes there. My average in Geometry Honors is a 90.5, and my Spanish II average is 93.8. I also take tennis and piano, and I have a mentor in microbiology and take a bio-ethics class (geological bio-ethics in particular). I have a private language arts tutor. I will be skipping 8th grade and going to high school at (barely) 13, which is even more impressive because I have a July birthday, especially considering most students either enter freshman year as 15 or will turn 15 in the 1st semester in this particular school. To hone you in on my reading level, my favorite authors are Willa Cather, George Orwell, and Paulo Coelho. My previous awards include:Science Olympiad Regional (Team) 4th PlaceScience Olympiad Regional (Personal Events) Anatomy 5th Place, Experimental Design 4th PlaceFPS (Team) Regional 1st place (state-wide)Some sort of spanish exam I did really well in and got $100.00, without any preperationScience Olympiad State (Team, Division A) 1st placeScience Olympiad State (Personal Event) Anatomy, 2nd Place (Division A), 8th overall (On what was called one of the hardest Anatomy tests in Science Olympiad history. It was made by a doctor and included material that wasn't required until national level-competition. One question required to identify the 'middle tissue layer of an artery' in a picture. I knew the name of what they were talking about, the tunica medica, but I had never seen an image of it)

    K, let me set this out for you:Being accepted as a 7th grader is EXTREMELY RARE. Your math SAT score is way too low to be accepted IN NORMAL CONDITIONS as a 7th grader. I know 8th graders who’ve applied with 800 Math’s and still not got accepted. So, based entirely on your little “diagnostic” then, no. Kaplan SATs are very accurate.Ok, I know this isn’t related, and I’m really sorry, but you are probably one the of most arrogant people I’ve ever met. And I haven’t met you. Your writing just exudes a “I’m-way-smarter-than-everyone-and-my-la… Because you can whine all you want, but your score’s your score. Your essay was worth a 3- if it were worth a 5, it would’ve recieved a 5, simple as that. As to the birthday thing, it’s doubtful that your classmates really got so far ahead in the four months they have over you, so don’t say you’re “barely” 13. You’re as 13 as everyone else. And whoopeee, you skipped a grade. Not that impressive at IMSA, where about 50 people get accepted to skip the 9th grade EVERY YEAR. So you have not only them, but others who have skipped grades before that.I feel really bad for typing that, please excuse my rudeness… but really. You’re not gonna be the best at IMSA. End of story.
