2257/758/490 not that anyone here actually cares

<p>in h.s. i had around a 91 average but took minimum requirements senior year. below 1200 on SAT but cant remember exact score off hand cause the process didnt mean anything to me. went to LAC in n.h. for 5 semesters and have a 3.5, but withdrew from 3 classes my final sem. 1 and 1/2 years ago. no ECs worth mentioning during h.s. or college.</p>

<p>since as far back as i can remember, ive been exposed to rich tradition in ceramic technique, and imparted with extensive knowledge on the subject. ive worked with some of the foremost folk potters, who have a profound sense of the skills involved, and who are as close as one could conceivably come to employing a traditional work ethic in this day and age. my grandma, who went to the college of ceramics at alfred university, has an incomparable archive of ceramic volumes, and her depth of insight in the field, became the most valued aspect of my nurturing. Although my hands-on experience through the many phases of working with clay, has given me a necessary closeness to the material, im not as interested in the applied production aspects of ceramics, as i am in studying its historical significance and implementation within a culture. without unequivocal utilitarian necessity that once was implicit of its very cause, there are very few present day cultural pockets worth exploring with this intention. </p>

<p>china still prides itself on its unparalleled ceramic history, which, through inexplicable, pervasive deftness, demonstrated its greatest culmination during the sung dynasty. only examples of koryo dynasty, korea, effectively convey a LAST WORD distinction of equal standing. theres also the japanese contribution: always trying to find a way to catch up, and ultimately setting iself apart in the most astonishingly, inimitable ways (the playful quality of oribe ware….etc….). i have the groundwork to devote the rest of my life to ceramics, as a either a potter, historian, or both; and for some time, they may continue to represent my utmost sources of inspiration, but i dont feel that either one should actually become my vocation. i am primarily interested in investigating a source and broadening my vision so that it is more about a cultural complexion as a whole, rather than the resonance of a specific aspect. in order to do this, i need to develop a competency in languages, and a proficient understanding of the histories of east asia. </p>

<p>the part the that i have going for me is the initial inspiration of a specific intuitive line, which has led me to this point – there is an opportunity to immerse myself in a solitary mode of expression, continually developing an appreciation for the tangible processes involved, or i can take a more cerebral stance, that has imminent and progressive, societal implications. possibilities in what the later choice alludes to excites me more, but to pursue it entails starting from an entirely new slate – i dont have the competitive credentials that would allow me to simply skip into a place like cornell. i know i can devise other options for pursuing this endeavor, but, right now; CU is the place. going into east asian relations could present me with the kind of opportunities i envision for the future. if i were able to build a really strong case around this hook i got, as hypothetical as it may seem (and i know it pains people on this board to see stats as deplorable as mine – well, maybe not as much as suffering through this post) – do you think i would have any realistic chance of transfer admission blah blah blah</p>

<p>eval stuff i kinda almost forgot
2257/758/490 break it down for each college<br>

"ECs are beyond important to cornell"

<p>Basically the pottery thing is great but if you apply to an asian studies major basically you have to had taken courses relating to it. Cornell is the only college in the country where their south east, south, and east asian studies program is recognized as a top program by the department of education, that basically means they want people that bring something to the table, not someone who is trying to use that as an excuse to get into Cornell, and as an east asian studies major I find that insulting that you would try to do that. Area Studies shouldnt be used as an excuse to try to get into a great school especially when you even stated you have nothing that proves your interest in the field besides pottery. If your grades are that poor its not going to matter what type of hook you have. Ni DIU CHOU le!! BAKKA GAIJIN!! BA NA GUAI LOU!!!</p>
