So remember how I was all like “I’m not going to apply for film scoring grad programs because I’d rather just do regular music composition because I want a broader knowledge and will have more options of what to do with my degree” and shit like that?
WELL THAT’S SUPER DUMB BECAUSE I WANT TO BE A FILM COMPOSER.
If I’m going to go for this, I have to go for it 100%. Not get a regular music composition degree so I can feel safe knowing I could be a professor.
These film scoring programs may have rejected me before, but I’ll do better this year. I’ll apply to more schools this time, I’ll write better essays, I’ll have a better portfolio, and I’ll have a better resume.
Columbia, NYU, and Bristol, you’ll be hearing from me again. USC, UCLA, Berklee, Royal College of Music, and North Carolina, you’ll also be hearing from me this year. BRING IT.
I refuse to let the fear of being rejected again prevent me from studying what I really want to study. And maybe applying for 8 programs instead of 3 will increase my chances of being accepted somewhere? Fingers crossed. <3
