I am a Texas senior who is very interested In the Music Industry program at USC. I have a 3.6 unweighted GPA and an 26 ACT score. I am a terrible test taker and I’ve taken the ACT several times and can’t get my score any higher. My GPA should go up with my AP courses this year to hopefully a 3.7 or 3.8.
I am heavily already involved in the Music Industry. I run a music non profit and where I Interview bands for charity. We have interviewed artists like the 1975, Bad Suns, and many more. I am also the executive producer of our school broadcast journalism program and I manage over 50+ staff members. I work for a Woman empowerment music publication as a Dallas representative. I am shadowing a major music producer from LA at a Dallas festival in December. My Resume has an outstanding amount of EC’s and work experience. I used to be an English Horseback riding instructor, and Art teacher at a local studio. Now I’m a Waitress. I am extremely passionate about my career path and have booked shows for local artists and coordinated festivals at venues in Dallas. I have two internships one with my school as a selected student media inern and another with a booking company in Dallas. I have worked with advertising and marketing for band promotion. I have been doing things in the industry since I was 14. I am so extremely passionate about my career path. USC allows Music Industry students to send in 3 question video interviews where I feel like I can really explain my heart and drive for this industry. I am also an AP art student. My essay is detailed about the story of how I became passionate to music and how it effected my life. My resume is good. My The only thing I am truly worried about is my score. I am really just curious if my application will even be looked at.
