as for applying, they love fun, risk takers I would say. So show that (if you’re that). Just be yourself! Emerson was great! Opened a tons of doors for me, and you get to work and study around insanely motivated and busy people. Like, it’s actually uncool to not be involved in something! If you like being busy, you’ll love Emerson. Also, Boston is just such a fun (cold) but fun city to live in for four years. No matter where you go school, DEFINITELY study abroad.
