Time for a Check-in…Are We Looking Out or Looking In?

When I was deciding where I wanted to go to college it ultimately came down to two schools. Over months I had watch rejection after rejection come in from almost every school I applied to. I had one school that was considered one of the top programs for musical theatre (which is what I wanted…
