    @BFAMom2024 I LOVE how your D stayed true to herself. My S was much the same way.... he insisted doing this his own way so that he would be wanted for who he is. I know one person at PACE and she is very much an individual, too

    Thanks, everyone, for sharing these stories full of helpful information! I don't want to start a CC battle, but I have to ask... is anyone else seriously considering a gap year, perhaps with some kind of additional actor training? Or at least assuming in-person classes will not resume in the fall? (Which is admittedly trickier for performing arts majors.) I'm hearing that chances are 50/50 classes will be online in the fall. As background, we're a veteran family who spent many years adapting to major changes in plans when my spouse was on active duty. We're not particularly excitable but try to respond to evolving circumstances.

    Great story @prarie ! Congratulations to him on finding a great fit school. I love how different all of our stories are, but there are pieces of everyone's stories that I can relate to.

    @ThespianMitera We are not personally considering delaying start, but I know I have read a lot of CC threads where people talk about that. I just looked and couldn't find the exact threads, but I know the MT boards are full of people discussing what to do in the current climate.

    Maybe this link will help:

    It was originally started for people who weren't getting the audition results they had hoped for, but I know I've read info on delaying due to COVID too.

    @BFAMom2024 - wonderful story! My D also did a monologue with curse words and for the same reason. She ended up exactly where she was meant to be - when you aren't orange pekoe, you don't expect to be everyone's "cup of tea". I am thrilled for you D with Pace - it's a fabulous program and my D (who is also in NY) has really adored being in the city for school. Really, it doesn't get a lot better than being a college student in NYC (and let's all burn incense and sage leaves and/or pray in the hopes they are all IN NYC this August).

    @prarie - SO exciting! I know the kids at BW really love it - just a very happy, talented crew there. So glad your S found his peeps and his perfect fit.

    My son not only had an f-bomb but actually ended one of his monologues by flipping the bird, and got into the same school your D attends, @CaMom13 ! I guess they like spicy tea in the city! :joy:
