    @harvard2024, this is your first post. On what basis are you saying "low"?

    I disagree. @JakeZim I think you have a shot at getting in, for sure, but like everyone else, don't count on it and make sure you have other schools that you could be happy attending. Your acting/musical theater activities are an important part of your application, and I hope you are submitting an arts supplement with a video, a resume with performances and awards, and a letter or two from a teacher or director related to theater.

    I would be curious to know more about the community service to homeless students.

    Be careful not to pad your application. What was involved in the little free library? Should that be listed? Is it in a community with no library, for instance? Did it take a lot of initiative to get going? If so, great, keep it.

    Thanks for the advice! I unfortunately missed the deadline to submit a video of any performances, but I did submit a resume. I started the little free library because I have difficulty reading myself, and I wanted to inspire more people to read in the community, but I’m afraid the only place I explained this was in my interview. Will it help that I’m a person who applied in the humanities with an obvious intention to join their drama program since not too many people with my stats would be applying for drama? Or would they only want to accept people who are #1 in the nation at drama with acceptable stats?
