Hi guys. I'm a rising senior and, unfortunately, I don't have much experience at all with the college search process. I've come up with a few schools that I think would be a good match, and a couple "safeties", but I'm just not all that familiar with the whole search process. Does anyone have any school suggestions for me to study music ed in? And yes, I could google schools, and I have, but this might be more helpful because there are actual people on these forums with actual college experiences.
My stats are:
1960 SAT (but will retake in fall, hoping for maybe 2000?)
a lot of EC in music (including assisting in orchestras for young kids)
So far, I've come up with Umass Amherst, Umass Lowell, and Westfield State, which I've scheduled visits to. If possible, I'd like to attend school in MA so that I can get in-state tuition prices.
