Discus: What Are My Chances?: September 2003 Archive: Creative works to Colleges! BTW mine included :)

Hi you guys. I was wondering if the whole creative work submittance can really increase your chances. I've already put my stuff in the What are my chances thing months ago but now i have the materials (so dont ask for my sat's and whatever). Id probably submit these to Penn and Cornell, Brown.

I want to submit a piano piece I made. It's an improvisation. The one i send would probably be a little bit different and I'd send in a cd or tape along with a transcript (im not sure if i can figure out the rythyms). I really don't think it has meaning, but i am sad so maybe that reflects that. BTW i had to only use a snippet, for bandwidth on geocities, and also had to trim down the quality. I'm not asian, not out of disrespect, (just to point out that all the others i have encountered in composition are).

In addition, if i could I would like to submit some pictures I've taken. I think they are really strange (like they are of me, but they dont look me at all, freaky.

Thanks for your time. Im hoping that maybe penn will overlook my 7% rank with all this. Or tell me if you reckon they'll reckon me to be some wierdo. If anyone knows of experiences with submitting creative works in general, please share.

Does your creative work have some special theme at all? I can't get hold of one... I'm going to submit some sort of creative work as well, a summary of my hobbys and accomplishments in comic-form.

BTW, GeoCities has some strange policies about being linked. You must add the "www" or you will get a 404 Boo-Boo.

Try it out:

If you understand the art of photography and WHY things look good then yes it will impress them..

But those pictures aren't any good, to me, and I don't think they will be impressive unless you wrote a paper about photography or took college level classes on it or have recieved awards.. if you just take pictures and keep the ones that come out looking good, that is nothing to an adcom.
