Okay, I definitely stressed myself out as I went through the high school admissions process. Just like thousands of other eighth-graders in New York City public and private schools, I was channeling my arts passions into the already stressful high school choice process. In addition to keeping up my grades (including two Regents classes I took that year), I had to develop and rehearse my audition repertoire and then schedule a dozen auditions. But it paid off when I received offers from my first choice schools and programs.
