Yeah its a big step (or branch out as you put it) for a MS. But you clearly have a gift of determination. Use it!

More good news from terpprm \:\)

Congrats on the choice to go into modeling. I have spoken to one other here who was once a model. I'll let him do the talking about that if he chooses to share that here \:\)

and... I liked the word "supporty" I thought it was cooly

my thing is, if you are hot enough, no one cares how you walk. haha. and its about the clothes. so essentially you are just the mode of transportation

a girl i work with at starbucks went to the same school i have to and she said i have to learn how to walk on a catwalk, put on make up, acting, and things like that. i don't mind. i'm sure the money's worth it.

yeah. i am leary of schools for modeling though. a lot of them use false praise and encourage you even if you will never be a model because they are in it for the money. it's a great start and a step in the right direction, but i would not expect to have a career based on the school. you either have it, or you don't. its a tough career.

an agency is sending me to the school though. i'm not going voluntarily. so it's evr-so slightly different. but i know what you mean, cause i was leary at first too. but i figured if an agency was sending me, there's at least a little promise. the school is barbizone in cleveland. the agency is stone modeling agency in cleveland as well, if you wanna look into it more.

yeah i googled it. i still am leary. but give it a shoot and see what its like. sometimes agencies and schools have contracts with eachother. so check it out. if its lame, then dont go back. if its good, then great! have an open mind.

I was a model for a short time. There was one scouting event ("cattle call") that had bogus written all over it. They were trying so ridiculously hard to "stoke" me about getting selected to go on their trip to some big camp or something. It was thousands of dollars to go and I just didn't understand why I should be paying for anything like that. What fresh model trying to get started in the industry has several thousand dollars at their disposal? The girl on the phone repeatedly asked me if I was excited, using her best "game show contestant"
voice. There were lots of signs that indicated this was just a way to get wanna-be models to hand over money.

I did a few volunteer shoots (for the experience, always a good idea) and a couple paid shoots. The last shoot I ever did paid the most, and I got a few good shots. It's actually still on the studio's web site and he states that I was his first model and his favorite. I never really felt the need to go back, despite several requests from him.

I never went back to it after that because I quickly realized that I was doing it for my self-esteem. That's just not good because I was far too sensitive to rejection. It should have a been a business endeavor and not a personal validation endeavor. I decided to stick with engineering.

If you don't mind, can you give me some idea as to how much the school is costing you? Please PM me if you want to keep it discreet.

Best of luck!!

Craig

i ended up not doing the modeling. it just seemed a bit fake. plus, i have better things to do with my life. like work and spend time with my girlfriend. but i may go to college this fall, only in a local community college. this is still undecided.
