Long-time lurker here. I've just finished with the grad school application process and have three great places from which to choose: NEC, MSM, and Peabody. I'm lucky enough to be graduating with no debt from my undergrad, so I am just wondering if going into debt for music grad school is worth it. I'm a string player looking to pursue a performance career, if that helps.
Things to consider: I got into my first-choice studio at NEC but would be borrowing about 30K/ year for 2 years to attend. Both MSM and Peabody gave me significantly more scholarship money than NEC (but I would still be going into debt in order to attend *any* of them...at the very least, 15K/ year). However, NEC is definitely my first choice, mainly based on the caliber of the teachers, students, and its reputation.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this decision. Thanks!
