BC: Reflection: After doing the research on this school as well, I have found that I do like this school a lot and I can afford it. I went to a band clinic at the school earlier in the year, so I had a little background on it, but I did learn how cheap it really is to go to the school. I do like that a lot and I also like the smallness of the school. My least favorite aspect about it is how low the set their requirements, but I like it at the same time because they give everyone a chance. There really wasn't much that I didn't like.

7: Reflection: After doing the research, I don't really think I want to go to Duke because it's so expensive and the fact that I don't even begin to qualify. I learned that they have a lot of different majors to go in and exactly how high their expectations are. What I liked about Duke is they look for more potential than anything. They say on their website specifically that they do not want any perfectionist or performance based person but they do want potential. I like that a lot. I don't like how high the expectations are because most students cannot achieve that nor can they pay the money that is asked.
