Thought I'd take this conversation off the board...as many won't be interested in the details. So what degree program is your D looking at at OCU? Their MT degree is a BM....very, very musically oriented....classical singing, etc. Is she looking at their BFA in acting or their dance degree? I would caution with OCU that it is VERY difficult to get cast in their musicals even if you are an MT (because they take in 30-35 freshman every year)....but if a student is an acting major there is almost no hope of getting cast in a musical. They do cast dancers occassionally in dance-heavy musicals. Also, OCU is not cheap but they occassionally offer very good scholarships. My oldest received about a 60% scholarship (academics and talent) but my younger daughter, also accepted into their program, received much less.....seems like the boys got lots that year.
