For a long time I was really sure that I wanted a BFA. I was ready to run off to college, train my heart and soul out, and pop into the professional world. But when actually confronting this, I wasn't able to part with some of the more "traditional" things that a BA has to offer-- I really like to learn, and I figure that being an undergrad is the last time that you get the solid chance to expand your knowledge on a more general level. So, some questions:
-are all BFA programs pretty much "we're in the studio from 9 to 4 almost everyday" (thus making the more "traditional" college experience of running from class to class improbable)?
-are there any BFA programs out there where you can double major without killing yourself or having to constantly fight to have room for your classes? (some schools say that you "can", but we all know that just because something is theoretically possible doesn't mean one should attempt it)
-do the more pre-professional perfomance-based BAs work in the same way as the strict BFAs? (i.e. it's also "well, we're in the studio from 9 to 4...")
-do people (like, possible employers or people evaluating you when appling to a graduate program) look at you differently if you have a BFA vs. a BA (or the opposite)?
-any general suggestions on schools where you are still free to persue more general areas of learning but still get a solid training in theatre (both BA and BFA)?
