THE WAITING GAME
The best advice I can give anyone during the period between submitting and waiting for pre-screening results is to do something completely different from the process of application.
It could be anything! But I recommend something that can help blow off steam, like dancing!
...or watching a movie
...or partying with friends
Being able to submit an application to a Drama school such as Juilliard is a feat and an act of courage in itself. Make sure to treat yourself very kindly! It is also best to remind ourselves that whatever happens, the arc of our lives continues even in the presence of a door that will not open. As my hero, Jim Houghton – former Artistic Director of the Juilliard Drama Division would say, “Go through the door that’s open, not the one you think should be open.”
Take it easy!
