D and my husband visited, as D accepted into their Theatre program for Fall '07. They both went on and on about the fabulous facilities, rooms for practice-voice in her case. The musical was in their opinion VERY good. She thought facilities were newer and more extensive than UCLA. She did not audition, but she was an ELC student(top 4% of her graduating class-calif.public school). She had visited UCLA and NYU. UCI offered her the most $$$. She did not audition, FYI. She is a member of her hs perf.arts academy which she did have to audition. I hope this helps.
