I'm an incoming senior in high school, and I'm thinking to study music in college.
I've done quite a substantial amount in piano (studied for 10 years, gotten scholarships, performed with orchestras, etc. etc.) so I feel that I am qualified for a music degree in college.
However, I come from Whitney High School which is one of the top academic schools in the nation. Music isn't really a priority there and because of this, I feel like I haven't been able to put in as much time as some of the other students intending to major in music at college.
My unweighted GPA is around 3.7, I've taken a few AP's, 30 on the ACT...my academic record isn't impressive, but I don't think it's too bad.
My question is, for someone like me, do you think I would have a higher chance getting into, say USC, applying as a BA in music or a BM?
Do you know the difference in the admission process for a BA in music student vs. a BM?
