Cheekychee -- My daughter did a program at Stella Adler last year and is doing CMU's program this summer. I can't tell you specifically about BU's program from an experience standpoint but all these programs seem pretty similar in that they try to replicate in a very similar fashing what the conservatory training experience is for the BFA students. They take the basic building block kinds classes -- voice, movement, scene study, etc. -- that the BFA's take. I think the most helpful part of these programs is that the kids get to see if this is really the life they want.
