Auditioned MT: Plymouth State University (BA MT), Montclair State University (BFA MT)
Accepted MT: PSU, MSU
I originally was a student studying Musical Theatre at the University of New Hampshire, and I found myself quite disappointed with the program. I decided that a transfer was necessary, so I auditioned for Montclair State, and PSU as a back-up. I ended up getting accepted to both, and chose Montclair because of the wonderful reviews I've heard about the program. Also, when I visited, everyone in the department was incredibly friendly and helpful. Their curriculum also interests me, because it requires you to focus on all aspects of musical theatre, music theory and dance interesting me the most.
My specific reasons for transfer:
UNH, while being a good school for the sciences (Chemistry, Engineering, etc.) is not known for the Arts, meaning that the facilities are mediocre, and some of the staff are unwilling and unhelpful. Also, the music and theatre departments were at ends with each other, and I feel to achieve a successful musical theatre education, it is necessary that music and theatre coincide easily.
