What should I do about college classes?

Question by lorraineeee: What should I do about college classes?
I’ll be starting college in the fall as a freshman. I’m not sure if I’m ready though. My whole life people have put me down, called me a nobody and have said that I won’t make it through life. I’m attending community college, which to me isn’t a big deal, but to my family it is. Both my older siblings attended good universities and were positive on what they were going to study. Being the youngest in the family I feel that no one really expects much from me. Everytime I get asked “what are you studying in college” my reply is always “I don’t know”. For some reason my heart is telling me to take a few drama classes, even though I was never part of a drama club/class in middle school or h.s. Ever since I was little I had the earge to just try out for plays or just put on a show for my family. But with parents like mine they would’ve found it silly. This may sound weird but I’ve been getting random signs about acting and that I should just try it out, no matter what anyone says. I’m just not sure, so it would be nice hearing some of people’s thoughts and opinions.

Q&A: What constitutes a “lead” or “supporting” role in an acting resume?

Question by Jessie E: What constitutes a “lead” or “supporting” role in an acting resume?
I am 17 and I’m editing/updating my acting resume for college auditions. Something I feel the need to add, since some of the productions I’ve been in aren’t as well known as others, is distinguishing lead from supporting roles from ensemble/chorus roles. But I’m not sure on some of the roles.

For example:

Little Women (the musical) – Beth (lead/supporting)
Twelfth Night – Olivia (lead/supporting)
Little Shop of Horrors – Ronnette (supporting/ensemble)
The Princess Bride – Inigo Montoya (I’m guessing supporting?)

If you are familiar with any of these productions, please let me know which you think I should distinguish my role as on my resume, or if it’s even necessary at all.

Also, most of the productions I’ve been in have been at school (middle school and high school), so there’s no real theater company to add. Right now I just have “High school” or “Middle school” in the third column next to the roles. Should I add/replace it with the director’s name or say the institution name?

Thank you for your help! 🙂
I’ve seen it on sample resumes often so I assumed it was common.

My CV doesn’t state what sort of role it is (it’s unimportant). Do you have to put what sort of role it is? (It isn’t the norm).

Do you detest people who act “cool” in the realm of middle/high school?

Question by Joko: Do you detest people who act “cool” in the realm of middle/high school?
I am indeed astonished at how people can act “gangster”. If that is your legitimate personality that you have grown up with, and no one seems bothered with it, I respect you. However, the ones I am criticizing are those who act cool just so they can enter the fictional sociological class of “popularity”, as it is known in Middle/High School.

To those who got into the “elite schools”…?

Question by Amber: To those who got into the “elite schools”…?
Hey everyone,
I’m wrapping up my high school career and the next thing on my imaginary to-do list is: Apply to college.

I’m a junior and i’ll be graduating in June 2013, but I understand that I should begin to compose my college apps this summer. There are a couple of schools that I would really love to attend, but that’s only possible if i get in.
I would really appreciate it if someone who DID get into the so-called “elite schools” would review my tentative application and give me a approximate idea of what my chances are and where I should focus on getting into:


1) SAT I: 2300

2) SAT II: Biology (E/M) 790, Math I 770, Math II 780, Chemistry 790, US History 800.

3) ACT: 35

4) GPA: 4.466 (weighted with AP Classes)

5) Rank: 1/790

6) AP Exams: Human Geography (3), US History (5). Tentative scores for May 2012 tests: AP Biology (5), AP Macroeconomics (4), AP English Language (5), AP Government (5)

7) I’ve taken the hardest possible courses available in my high school

8) Senior Year Course Load (Tentative): AP Calculus BC, AP Lit, AP Physics, AP Chem, AP Stats.

9) 5 years of math in high school, 3 years of Spanish, dual enrolled in Human Anatomy @ University of Michigan, took a college class (chemistry) on my own last summer.

10) Major Accomplishments: Math and Science Olympiad Champion (2012), Debate speaker award (2011), Debate 2nd place (2010), Quiz Bowl 2nd Place (2010, 2011), FIRST Robotics State Champions (2010), FIRST Robotics World Championships (Attended 2010), Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (Violin, 1st chair), Presidential Volunteer Service Award, AP Scholar with Distinction, traveling around Europe with my orchestra, several local violin scholarships, local writing scholarships


1) Summer Activities: Nano Camp, University of Michigan Medical Camp, Student Leadership Conference, self-study college classes, working on 2 undergraduate research papers with a professor from U-M ( 1 of them is set to be published in a scientific journal through NSF in fall 2012 )
2) Location: Michigan, USA
3) Ethnicity: Asian (Indian)
4) Household Income: Less than 100,000
5) First Generation College Student
6) Female
7) ~300 hours of total volunteer service (Hospitals, Tutoring Centers, Habitat for Humanity, Soup Kitchen, in foreign countries)
8) Varsity Debate Captain, Varsity Quiz Bowl Captain, Vice President of a local Youth United Committee (through Habitat for Humanity), Member of Student Council, Assistant Instructor in my Karate dojo.
9) My high school is a public school with too many competitive, overachieving students.
10) Black belt in Karate
11) I’m pretty sure i’ll get a glowing counselor rec (according to what he told me), and pretty good teacher recs.
12) i’m pretty decent at writing essays as well.

^SO, those are my stats. In my school, they dont offer an orchestra program or very many science/math type of things, so i’ve had to achieve most of those myself.

Because of my involvement with Habitat for Humanity since 2010, i’ve realized that my passion lies with the underrepresented and under served populations. I’ve volunteered extensively in a clinic that provides services solely for under-served and disadvantaged peoples in Flint, MI in addition to traveling to Bangladesh and volunteering in a kidney dialysis center during the summer of 2011. The privilege of getting to experience working with the people that society shrugs away truly inspired me to try to make a difference for those people when I get older. Therefore, I really want to pursue an education in the medical field and establish a non-profit clinic in a underrep. country, similar to the kidney dialysis clinic that i volunteered in last summer. I honestly believe that providing for these under served individuals should not be regarded as a “necessity” or “obligation” but as something that we should be happy and willing to do since these are our people who are suffering in a completely unfair “class system”.

By going to a prestigious school, I feel like I’ll get the tools necessary to achieve my goals. Also, ive been conducting animal biology research with a biology professor at the University of Michigan, and having a state-of-the-art facility to research in would also be a major dream of mine.

I know this post is incrediblyyy long, but if you’ve sat through the whole thing then I’d really appreciate it if you would weigh my chances of what school I have a shot at. Some schools in mind is the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Stanford, MIT, Columbia, and Princeton.
Thanks so much 🙂
