I have to say, I jumped into my applications last year pretty half cocked and I'm excited to be much more active in the process this go around. I'm keeping really busy by studying for my GRE to take it at the end of September. Anyone taking the GRE? You can see where I'm applying and how things went for my for 2016's attempt in my signature. I have to say I learned a ton and I'm not discouraged in the slightest by how things turned out! I did a TV workshop at Columbia that was amazing and incredibly rewarding. Both in terms of the work I was able to accomplish and some really valuable friendships and partnerships I established. I even added UCLA to my list this year in hopes of getting into a program with someone I met at Columbia. How did everyone else spend their summers getting ready for their application season?
