The Result...

I didn't get in.

They want me to do a second masters degree.  They were still concerned about the number of slips, even though they did have some nice things to say about my playing, too.

I've got a lot to think about and decide.  Thanks, everybody, for all the love and kindness and prayers.  I've been so grateful for the peace that you helped me gain.

I'm sorry to hear it but I'm glad you went for it. Sounds like greener {ha ha :)} pastures lie elsewhere.

I know it sounds trite, but it's true: "When God closes a door, He opens a window." I know you'll find the direction you want to go in.

Oh Kerri - I'm so sorry. I've been inspired (more than you can imagine) by your courage through this process. I'm so glad you went for it. You're a wonderful example. And I trust in God's total awareness of you and your gifts. xo

Well, crap. I'm so sorry, Kerri!

That said, I am so uplifted by your attitude and the way you approached this. I am sure that much good will come out of this, and I can't wait to see what it all is!

So sorry. Don't do another Masters, not worth it. If you still want to do a DMA keep practicing and you'll get there. You can try again, right? In the years since college I have studied and learned a lot about how to prepare in order to perform with 100% accuracy, something I was never taught as a student, shame on my teachers (makes me a little angry at all of them). My students have to prepare and play with that level of accuracy to compete against the California Chinese. Don't give up on your dream.
