Hey I was wondering if this looks like what BGSU tends to like for music/creative writing majors:

*GPA: 4.19 weighted (going to rise)
3.82 unweighted (same)
*Rank: 31/317
*SAT: (they're not fair)..writing 610, crit reading 520, math 550.
*ACT: Taking it June 10th.
*9th grade i took almost all honors (I have 2 B's on my transcript and 1 b+), 10th grade i took 2 honors but got A's across the board, this year (11) i took 1 ap and 4 honors and have all A's. Next year, I am taking 4 AP's (2 AP and 2 ap weighted honors) and 1 actual honors class.

Extracurriculars/interesting facts:
*People to people student ambassador program (summer of 2002)

*junior mendelssohn choir (2 years i a row, and soon to be next year!)
*voice lessons (past 2 years and when i was 8 and 9)
*piano lessons (11 1/2 years)
*cantoring for my rabbi for high holidays
*jazz choir (including a performance at PNC park, Pittsburgh's baseball stadium--soon to be 2 years)
*chamber choir (most elite choir in high school-soon to be 4 years)
*County chorus
*Showchoir in middle school (7th/8th grade)
*District chorus
*Played piano for high school orchestra in 9th grade
*3 piano competitions in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade
*Classical Singer competition
*Music Theory class over the summer (coming)
*National Honors Society
*Played piano/sung in numerous nursing homes for the past several years.
* (I might be writing for the local "free" newspaper to get experienced w/writing).
*6 months of Saxophone (5th grade!)
*1.5 years of guitar in 8th/9th grade
*Anime Club in 9th grade.

    Acceptance to the college of musical arts in based mainly on your audition I believe.

    if you want to do preformance I'd suggest looking at CCM. BG's College of Musical Arts forte is its' music ed program, which is arguably the best in the state.

    even if you get deferred out of the music program you will be placed in liberal arts and sciences, so either way you WILL be admitted to the University

    As a music kid, that sounds pretty cool.
    Plus, if you have been playing piano for 11+ years, you should have no issues.
