    I never want to graduate! This made me sad 🙁 Hopefully I can teach at
    Exeter when I grow up.

    You just get to a point in your life when you reflect on all the decisions
    that you ever made. I have friends and family who’s always saying I want to
    go to the academy but it’s so hard. I say “shoot they came to see me”. Even
    the high school I attended in the city is hard and I made first list. I was
    at the top of the list when they received my application. But hey, the past
    is the past congrats to all students and graduates.

    14 yrs ago I was highly recruited to go to the academy. I graduate middle
    school with a GPA of 4.5. I was the only child and was very sheltered, I
    didn’t go I still attended a great high school in the city. But like every
    teen got caught up with the wrong crowd got arrested and went to boots
    camp. I eventually got back on my feet now I’m 27. Obtain my degree in
    business work in a school, but I wonder what could’ve been.

    Went to the PEA Summer Session of 2010. I stayed in Ewald dorm. It was a
    great experience, the high light of my summer.

    exeter’s so much better than my current school. It has a huge campus, it’s
    amazingly fun to study there, and it’s cool to be smart. I am determined to
    get it’s offer @2011 FALL. Go exeter! I will try my best!

  19. Eradic8ion says:

    @MrZigfee All the normal stuff like good grades, etc. but also, you have to
    have something special to offer to the school. For me, it was art and
    sports that got me in. Also, i recommend going up there for the interview
    and not just doing one on skype.(shows ur interested). besides that, just
    do as well as you can. I hope you get in and experience the same level of
    excitement that i did 🙂 good luck!

    I was invited :p

    welcome to exeter, class of 2015 🙂

  23. Rosie h says:

    its kinda hard to explain. grades and test scores are important, but i
    found it mostly came down to who you are. the interview was what helped me
    get in because i was able to have a conversation about my passions and
    goals and establish myself as “interesting”. my advice is work as hard as
    you can, make the applicant essays personal and try to relax and just enjoy
    the interview. the admissions people are super friendly and easy to talk
    to. hope this helps a little! ~class of ’15

    I’ve also been to Exeter Summer program just recently of the summer of
    2009. It was really great and I hope to get accepted to exeter for the fall
    semester of 2010. GO EXETER!
