So...I would consider music to be one of my "hooks" (juilliard, aspen, principal of a prestigious youth orch, etc.), but I'm not really interested in going into music as a career, (although if accepted into yale I would like to audition for the symphonic orchestra...)
But I recently heard from a friend who is applying to Yale as a music major that even music majors are admitted like any other student (i.e. SATs, ecs, etc.) and that the supplement is the only way they can incorporate music into their apps.
Does this mean that the music supplement is only for prospective music majors? Should I not consider sending in a supp. since I don't want to go to their music school?
