I did a collage sort of thing which came out pretty nice but the admission rep at an information sessions at the school cautioned against collages causes theyre overdone and unless theyre good, they dont interest them as much as something more unique
I sent in a personal essay I had written in the eleventh grade (I obviously did some reworking because it wasn't perfect or anything). It was REALLY personal though - a "linguistic moment" pertaining to me and my ex-gf... but it was very well-written and I was proud of it. I hope that Vassar thought so too. If not, I don't think submitting a Your Space will work against you. It might just not help.
Man that takes a lot of guts. When I "came out" it was just by not denying the rumors and then everyone was like "Oh...okay....I thought so.....cool." And that was that. What exactly are the punishments? How did you avoid being punished?
well theres a law left over from our colonial heritage which states "sexual intercourse between man woman or beast which is against the order of nature is punishable upto ten years of imprisonment and or punitive fines"
the "order of nature" is defined as any intercourse which is not child bearing this includes oral or anal sex of both heterosexual and homosexual nature its basically used by police officers to blackmail/persecute gays and or rape them
fortunately i have never faced any of this but surviving in this society of prejudice is more than enough
I sent in a piano solo recording that I made of the Chopin Scherzo in Bb-minor (are there any classical music buffs out there that know this piece?). You guys think this was okay to send in on behalf of the "Your space" section?
actually, as i have mentioned before, i actually had an interview with the music Chair a month ago. with my musical cd i will be sending in a student resume also. So hopefully, my talent will speak for itself through my playing rather than me simply writing about it. I was just concerned that the "Your Space" had to be a writing thing, and that sending in music would not be considered a part of your space. But it is too late to change anything anyway, so whatever happens happens!
I have a question and guess that the internet is probably the best place to ask it. Why are you gay? not in a disrespectful manner or anything, but was this a choice, did it happen gradually, what why and what do you get out of sleeping with a man?
Yes, about Your Space. Would it be completely not following the directions if I sent a tape instead? You see, I do this thing where I can tell the story of any musical, using the music in about five minutes. I used to make musicals into bedtime stories for the kids I babysat. When my friends are auditioning for musicals, I do it to brief them for thier auditions. My friends joke that I should make taped musicals cliff notes. So I was thinking about doing one of the Wizard of Oz - the first play I ever saw (I want to major in drama, by the way) - and kind of relate to my life as I go. Am I totally losing it? Maybe I've just been working on college apps for too long. Is this even allowed?
