I am convinced that I can get into Juilliard and this is a problem

I just got accepted into my state's all-state orchestra as one of 2 clarinetists!! I played in the all-state band in my freshman and sophomore years, but the band accepts a ton of clarinetists every year. Being accepted into the orchestra is a much bigger deal since there are only 1 or 2 spots for each instrument and thousands of people from all over the state audition. My being accepted basically means that I'm the best high-school clarinetist in my whole state adsjkfkajsdfafasdf. My ego is so inflated right now and I'm convinced that I could get into Juilliard or Curtis or Berklee or Eastman even though I'm still just a junior. But this is probably not true because I don't even know any of my minor scales and I only practice like. once a week. can someone humble me please! or congratulate me idc

Great job! but remember; it takes practice to succeed in life. Not just music- math problems, spelling words, memorizing terms, communicating with family and friends... you get the picture. Focus on doing the best you can; be the best student, musician, helper, friend, that you can possibly be. It's ok if you are not perfect; nobody is (and if anyone thinks they are, they've been jaded). Just put the most effort you can into life.

Also, music is not the only thing that matters for applications, though you are looking at music programs. Keep up those grades! Enjoy your time in the state orchestra, but remember, there's always more to learn and more improvement to make!
