Do you think I have a chance with getting into Emerson College?

Hey, I’m currently a junior in high school and I’m wondering if i have what it takes to get into Emerson College in Boston? which has always been my dream school. Well my high school GPA right now is about a 3.47 and i take pretty all really hard classes. 1 AP right now, and I’m taking 2 next year when I’m a senior. For my ressumme I was part of my school’s musical my freshman and sophmore years. I also have been working/volunteering at my town’s TV station for a pretty long time now. I’m videographer with sporting events/local rock concerts (where i also control audio), I edit events for the station, I’m a production assisant with some of thier productions, and I’m also a news correspondant for my town’s weekly news. I also have been working at an arts camp (where i also attended as a little kid), at the camp I assissant in teaching 9-12 year olds the basics of film and TV pro and then we make short films of thier choice. I also edit all their videos for the camp. The guy who runs the camp is a Yale theater graduate student (he’s friends with Paul Giamatti and Ed Norton, haha good connections hopefully lol.) He like loves me (or atleast people tell me he does…) and I work with him with all the video classes. I also teach on Stop-motion animation and “Radio” class there. I also attended a summer camp for 2 summers (8th grade/9th grade summers) which is like considered a pretty prestigious camp where i took a TV pro class, a reading class, Improv class, and a current events class. I also just co-founded my high school’s TV Club a few months ago. I’m the co-officer of the club and I pretty much control the whole club (don’t wanna sound cocky but I am the most motivated with doing everything in the club.) In the club, I’m the producer of the club’s cable TV show, and also head writer/monologue writer, and co-editor. I’m also producing my own local cable TV comedy talk show this coming summer (I’m a HUGE Conan fan so i’m pretty pumped for it.) I’ve also been hired to make 2 corporate videos before for online newsletters. One was for the NHL Winter Classic in Boston and i just did one for the Boston Marathon. I’ve also been a team leader, director, producer, writer, and editor for 2 films before in the 48 Hour Film Project. (one in Providence, and one in Boston.) I’m doing another Providence one this summer. My other hobbies consist of making short films, photography, play bass in band (mostly just for fun), and writing (i do write mostly comedic stuff, like SNL skits and monologue jokes, this is probably my favorite hobby.)
I also have a few other small things to add to my resume by they’re pretty mini.

…But despite even if my ressume may be pretty decent, there is still one problem, i completely BOMBED my SATs, like horribly, i got a 1470 (combined all 3 sections). I know pretty bad. But the odd thing about my scores is that they made no sense what so ever to who I am as a person. I scored highest on math even thou math has ALWAYS been my weakest subject, and i score lowest on the writing section, (which makes no sense at all because i love writing and I’ve always been considered a pretty good by the people i know. i scored high on the writing essay part but then reallllyyyy low on the writing multiple choice.) But idk, i may just not be a good test taker, But do you people still think i may have a chance with getting into Emerson College?

P.S. sorry for all the spelling and grammer mistakes, it’s late right now

am i developing schizophrenia?

I’m 17. Among many other signs I know can be associated with schizophrenia, I have had one very clear sign. I hear voices in my head when I’m laying in bed at night.
Last night was the worst it has been. I heard about 15 different voices. Here are a few examples:
One was a little girl whispering “Do it, do it, do it, do it!”
One was a man from the old western times. He was yelling at someone else.
One was a very professional man in his 20′s. He wore a business suit and had combed dark brown hair. (Don’t quite know how I know what he looked like) He talked to me about something, but I don’t remember.
One was a man over an old sounding radio, at first he was over the radio. Then he sounded normal. He was screaming at me for something or another. His name is Chaz.
What the hell is going on with me? This is the first time so many have visited me, the first time they have been individual, the first time one has a name, and the first time one told me to “Do it”.

help-me!translate small translation english-italian!10 points?

“When i was growing up there always seemed to be music in the air.It came in from the street,from car radios,from restaurants and from the windows of apartments.At home my mother often sang -I have vivid memories of her singing while she was doing the dishes.My father played the mandolin,and my brother Frank played the guitar.And at that time there was an incredibile range of music on the radio,everything from Italian folk songs to country and western.
One day,when i was16,I heard something completely new.I’ll never forget the first time.I heard the sound of that guitar.The music was saying”Listen to me!”.I ran to get a pencil and paper,and wrote down the name.The song was See See Rider and the name of the singer was Leadbelly.I ran up to the record store on Forty-ninth Street as fast as I could and found an old Leadbelly record .I listened to it again and again.When you listen to Leadbelly’s music you feel inspired by its energy and truth,you really understand what it means to be human.That’s the blues.
At around the same time,my friends and I went to see Bo Diddley.That was another great moment for me.He was playing at the Brooklyn Paramount while he was performing.He was a great performer and was always moving from side to side of the stage.But Bo Diddley also did something unusual in a rock and roll show – he explained the different drumbeats and whic parts of Africa they came from.It gave us a sense of the history behind the music,the roots of the music.We all found this very exciting and we wanted to know more”.

kisses hello
