Well, I have been a shut-in for awhile and I applied for arts and culture study because I figured I finally want to do something. Now they send me this questionnaire asking me what to expect and such, so I just fill it in quick to be done with.

Now apparently the director of the study saw my answers for the questionnaire and send me an email asking me to come for a consultation because the study might not be fit for me.

First of all I feel like **** being told I'm not fit this close to the start of the semester, and second of all, imagining the 1 on 1 talk really get me nervous and make me want to throw up. I'm also suppose to call them to set up an appointment(another thing I hate, I have phone-phobia).

Anyway for starters I replied with an email asking if the talk in mandatory for the application.

I have no idea how to handle this..should I just be honest and tell her a 1on1 talk is big no no for me?

This is a good thing... hell, even a great thing. You get the chance to sit down with the director to discuss the program and your interests in art. I'm sure the director will be able to provide a lot of answers, and maybe you will get a spot in the class. Some face time just lets them see who you really are... not a big deal.

If you don't get in, she will be able to give you information on how to improve your application, perhaps look at different schools that are more focused on your interests.

Come prepared with questions. It's going to be hard on the SA side, but it will be really beneficial to get you on the right path.

OK I just realized it wasn't a selection tool and just some extra service, I can get accepted if I want

The thing is, I wouldn't know what the hell I want to talk about, I mean seen the courses, they seem interesting and that's why I applied. It's reading the description on the back of a book and some suddenly asks you "WHAT DO YOU EXPECT"
