My daughter just got accepted to go to Julliard?!?

She's only 13 and auditioned for Julliard! She didnt even tell me when she auditioned. And even weirder is that she never even told me that she played piano.

  • did you see a letter from julliard? this just seems fishy doesnt it? but my advice, find a counselor for you both to go to, so you can get to know each other. Not trying to judge you, i swear, but that IS sad that you didnt know something like that, and sad she isnt sharing. it can get better. take care mom.

  • Did she actually audition at Julliard in New York? (I'm not familiar with Julliard as to whether there is only one school based in NYC or if there are other "satellite" schools.) This could be one HUGE scam, do NOT send anyone money.
