genuinely tho, if everyone knew colleges arent looking for well rounded students, why does evertyone act like they are. every goddamn soap show has a kid who got into ivy league or oxbridge. but when you look at it, they are just average!

for all you kids applying to top schools, dont be fooled. being well-rounded does you no good. however, if you excel in one thing and stay grounded and humble, you will def be picked.

wow. i feel old. thanks yall. goodbye

I'm sorry you feel like that it's true that academics is prioritised! On the other hand, some unis do offer music scholarships and stuff
