Let's talk about your transcripts guys:
The transcript is the best instrument you have at your disposal to show how well you will do as a student at college. SAT's are also important, but transcripts show your consistency or lack thereof, and provide insight into who you are academically. If you are strong academically, that is wonderful. That is what colleges are looking for. Make sure you are taking the most challenging classes available at your school; this shows that you are invested in your education and colleges love that stuff. Whether it is AP classes, or CAPE as in my circumstance, make sure you show you are not afraid of taking on a challenging workload. Also keep in mind that colleges often use a holistic approach to looking at applications, so they will look at it in its entirety and then compare you to students like yourself who are operating within an environment similar to yours.
If you are weaker academically than you would like, use the time between now and the regular decision deadline to improve your grades and maybe do some extra credit work if you can. Grades are not the end all, be all of the application, but they do matter so keep up the good work! Get A's preferably. I know, it is easier said than done, but do you best so at the end of the day you can feel satisfied with your efforts. Self-satisfaction is more important than any outside validation, believe me.
Now on to the serious matters I referred to in the title. I WATCHED INCEPTION !!!!!!! It was...good. I have to admit that while the concept and some of the special effects were pretty amazing, I have seen better movies, or at least ones that appealed to my tastes more than Inception did. I kept expecting it to be really confusing because that was what everybody kept telling me, but it was fine. The director, writer, etc, just made a really smart movie that required attention instead of just passive watching. I love it when they do that. I am a movie addict so I want movies to be savored and enjoyed instead of just superficially watched. My dream dream job would totally be a film critic/entertainment lawyer. I've got to be involved in some way in my favorite world...and you know what they say, those who can't do...sue those who can! LOL. If law school doesn't work out, maybe I could be a comedian. What do you think? No? Yeah, maybe not so much. Til next time, Toodles!
