At some BA programs, such as Yale and Harvard, there is absolutely no oversight from the theater faculty on undergraduate student productions. Consequently, when a student director, set designer, actor or playwright makes a bad decision, egregious errors are made and whole productions suffer.
So, the whole BA vs. BFA vs. conservatory is a trade-off from my perspective.
