7: Personal Reflection: I am still very interested in going to this school after researching it further. This school seems very nice and I know the assistant music director of the school and he is interested in me, and my sister as well, going to this school because they are still building the music program. One thing I like about the school is that I could commute because of how close it is and I know I would be getting good help with some clarinet stuff if I needed it because the assistant music director is a clarinet player and helped me with something at All County Band this year, which was very helpful. I don't think there is anything that I do not like about this school.

14: Personal Reflection: I am now interested in possibly going to this school because of the good things I found in my research and some things I've heard about the school. I have a friend that is currently attending this school that really likes it, which encourages me to want to apply. One thing I like about the college is that I know I could get a good music degree there because of what my friend has told me and the pictures I've seen of the campus look very nice. Once thing I don't like about it is how far away it is and the cost because it is a private school and is out-of-state.
