Hey people, I just wanted to share what I put on my Additional Information section.
On my Junior Year, I participated in a very complex, but rewarding, project known as Integrated Project (IP), for my AP US History and Honors English class. IP is a yearlong commitment that requires continual involvement. IP involved two parts: research and application. My team had to thoroughly a research the social, political, economic, and daily life of a time period; our research would be reviewed by my AP US History teacher on about a monthly basis. After five months of research, the group then focused on creating an entertaining and educational production.
My project, entitled Standoff in Space, involved the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) during the Reagan Era. The first half of my presentation captured the subculture of fear of Nuclear War during the time. The second half offers a 'what if' SDI was real, and the Soviet decided to try to bomb the US. The result would take too long to explain, but the audience reaction would not. The audience found the humorous, education, and overall fantastic.
I was the group leader, director, co-video editor, co-historian, co-scriptwriter, and actor in my group for this project.
Here are excerpts of the hour-long IP presentation.

1. Should I upload the video of the end, with the crowds applause? I mean it sounds kinda self-indulgant on paper, but maybe colleges would like it, as a verifier of the projects actual success. What do you guys think?
2. Should I rephrase what I wrote or is it just fine?
3. Do you think the officer will actually watch all those videos?
