Assuming that this is for this year, have you applied to Juilliard and NEC? I don't think you can apply to the Columbia-Juilliard program except as a freshman; you can apply to the Harvard-NEC program after the first year. Both are small and require not only admission by both schools, but acceptance into the dual program. Same is true for Peabody. So, for example, Juilliard takes one or two a year; Harvard takes about 5 -- this is in all disciplines (instrumental, piano, vocal, composition). The Harvard and Columbia programs (and Yales, with the School of Music) are 5 years: you have lessons at the conservatory for the first 3 years, begin the MM program in senior year, and then go to the conservatory in the 5th year. Peabody is a BMus/BA program -- like Oberlin, but takes only a few students a year.
