Trying to make it out of Compton, humbly, experience life, n bring it back to where it all started, is a good start.
Im in the process of wanting to be an professional licensed Architect, but Music is my drive! Playing Marching, Jazz, or Orchestral, Mallets, Brass, or D-Kits; Percussion period is where I'm at!
Im a proud alumni of the Compton High School Marching Band,
"Im kool wit now what I do, juss ready to bow in to PVAMU!"
Im an open book!

Honestly, I'm not marching anymore. I graduated in 07. But I would say don't say things like, "look out for (insert nickname here)." Because I will be honest in that coming to PV is NOT like a lot of other schools. You really DON'T want people to know you before you get there, or to think you "think" you're cold, even if you are. (I took a picture in my full high school uniform throwing up the BOX sign..... they had the picture before band camp even started.....) Anyway, there is a really good chance you won't make it. Seriously..... But then again, I don't know you and the same was said to me and I ended up a section leader. You could be extra cold. I don't know. So the main thing is humbleness and the willingness to learn.
Get in your rudiment books. HARD! And not the essential ones, but the hybrids and everything else you can find. Watch all the BOX cadences you can find and learn them before you get there. And really pay attention to the form of whatever drum you want to play (I'm assuming snare).
I'm gonna be real, the "About Me" portion of your profile makes you seem high on yourself. lol
But that's all just old head wisdom. I'm sure you will see what the deal is when you get there and handle up.
