Is playing an instrument good? ...for stanford... elec guitar?

<p>this isn't a "Fancy" instrument but would playing the electric guitar help out in the admissions,if i was dedicated etc....?</p>

<p>depends how good you are. Can you play a variety of styles? One thing I know is that if all you can play is heavy metal, that's not gonna get you anywere.</p>

<p>If you can play heavy metal well then it would be advantageous.</p>

<p>i play punkish stuff.... not really heavy metal...</p>

<p>Well punk is just bad...:)</p>

<p>Seriously, if you devote a lot of your time to practicing and playing shows then put that down. Adcoms will certainly look at that part.</p>
