NYO2 Violin Alternate

NYO2 decisions got announced about a month ago, and I got an alternate position as violinist.
I would like to put it on my college application, but would it be looked down upon?
Thanks!

It is a remarkable achievement, congratulations!!!

I think as long as you specify the status of your offers to reflect your situation, it is worth to list it on your application, just make sure you are very specific if you were attending/admitted/selected as an alternate/received scholarship/received work-study scholarship.

Not to mention that today was the deadline for the main roster NYO2 musicians to accept or decline their offers of 2022 program admission. Their waitlist is not ranked! There could be some movement in that wait list! Good luck!

I don’t think so, that is an amazing accolade! My D22 tried NYO2 for a few years and didn’t get in. Has some other awards including state orch and private competitions, but I think anything NYO2 would be very noteworthy. Congrats, and get that on your apps!
