Personal Statement
682 Words
Art/acting/singing, Study/travel abroad
I never thought a single organization, regardless of the public notoriety, could change my entire life and how I thought about everything. The Philadelphia Boys Choir and Chorale was more than what its name could have possibly made it to seem. Because I played sports and I grew up in a family where music seemed to be only a hobby, I indignantly refused my mom’s pleas for me to try out for the Philadelphia Boys Choir over the summer....

Why I ultimately chose my school
314 Words

I talked to everyone who's opinion I value the most and the quote I heard the most was that I "can't go wrong either way" once I had narrowed it down to two choices. As I already said, I did not choose until the day before the deadline so clearly I had an incredibly hard time.
