My D is a senior in Frost, and it's been a wonderful experience for her. Admissions-wise, I think it was as selective as all of the other places she applied. She wound up at the U because of the professor for her instrument, and the climate didn't hurt either! She has had many opportunities in ensembles, made great progress academically and musically, made MANY friends and has been happy for all he years. She will be sorry to leave, come May. Good luck!
