Class of 2021 (Discussing application season, sharing, venting)

I am starting this to piggy back off of a similar discussion in the Musical Theater forum. We can start it off letting others know where your S or D has already applied and if they have gotten any acceptances yet.

    I will start! My D is using MTCA as her coach. She has applied to way too many schools but I will take the blame for that! Here's the list:
    American U - Auditioned BA
    CalArts
    Carnegie Mellon
    Chapman
    Cornish (they contacted her and asked if she wanted to audition at Unifieds so we added it last minute)
    Elon - passed prescreen but she may drop it
    Florida State - passed prescreen and accepted academically
    Loyola Marymount - accepted!
    Pace U - passed pre-screen and accepted academically
    Point Park - accepted academically
    Rutgers - accepted academically to School of Arts and Sciences
    SUNY Purchase
    UNCSA
    U of Alabama (non audition safety) - accepted
    U of Alabama Birmingham (non-audition safety) - accepted
    University of CA (Irvine, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara)
    U Minnesota
    USC
    University of Tampa
    University of Washington (non-audition safety)

    The New School - applied Common app but didn't finish supplement yet
    U Miami - did not pass prescreen
    Ithaca - did not pass prescreen
    Penn State - Applied to the school but didn't get the 5 page research paper pre-screen in on time

    @marg928 did your D decide not to apply to Juilliard?

    @theatermom16 - congrats!! Now you can relax and enjoy senior year!

    Thanks @toowonderful ! It was the perfect Christmas present!
  • marg928marg928 Registered User Posts: 1,011 Senior Member
    @bfahopeful I got the feeling she wanted to apply to Juilliard just to say she did so I nudged her away. Her MTCA coach really wanted her to but when I looked at their schedule of call backs I realized it would take up too much time for such a small chance of getting in. Plus I really can't see her being happy at a school like that. I think UNCSA and Purchase are on the same level even though the names don't carry the prestige...and she fell in love with Purchase so ultimately did not apply to Juilliard. We certainly have enough schools anyway!

    @marg928 makes sense.
  • marg928marg928 Registered User Posts: 1,011 Senior Member
    My D is doing almost all auditions at NY Unifieds and that following week through the next weekend. Consortium schools are the weekend after NY Unifieds and a couple of schools are doing during the week which I found strange. And then USC is coming to NY 2/5. Elon is the only one we're not sure what to do about. They invited her to audition 2/3 on campus so it would have to be a quick overnight so she can be back for USC on Sunday. It may just be too much and she lost interest in the school somewhere along the line, which I found disappointing.

    Screamplay, when did your D audition for/hear from The New School? (If you don't mind my asking.) Thanks.
  • marg928marg928 Registered User Posts: 1,011 Senior Member
    I got three more auditions scheduled today all in one weekend! UNCSA, Rutgers and Purchase all the weekend of 1/28 in NY! The New School is the only loose end...my D still didn't do the supplement.

    Break a leg @marg928. Exciting weekend.

    If anyone is auditioning for Hartt here's a heads up...after my daughter's audition they asked her what other plays the author of her monologue had written...threw her completely off...be prepared.

    I'm auditioning for seven schools in NYC over those two weekends in January. Also applied to Vassar and Northwestern. I was accepted academically at University of Minnesota in late November. So glad someone made this thread!

    Also, has anyone else noticed that the Rutgers and University of Minnesota callback weekends are the same? Has this ever been a problem in the past?
  • bfahopefulbfahopeful Registered User Posts: 887 Member
    Not sure if both Rutgers and Guthrie callbacks were the same date in prior years or not. I do know Guthrie will accept a video if unable to make callbacks. BAL to you!
