Syracuse does NOT have a cut policy; sophomore evaluations are just that -- evaluations. The school does not cut students to get a smaller class. Students are tested in 3 areas, voice, dance, and acting. If they do not meet expectations, based on both class work and evals, they may be asked to re-take certain classes; sometimes MT students will be advised to transfer to the Acting program (they can appeal this) and very rarely will a student be actually cut from the program. In my daughter's class, only one student was cut -- and believe me, it was for good reason; he was cutting classes and not following through on assignments, generally goofing off, etc.
Many students get very stressed over the sophomore evals -- but according to my D, there were no surprises. If you are doing your work and making progress, there shouldn't be a problem.
