Ok friends from CC.. I'm facing the toughest decision of my life so far...I'm a junior at a private college( major in business) with a 3.7 GPA, but i've always wanted to be involved in the entertainment industry (movie tv music). i could graduate on may of 2010. My question is; should i graduate and then apply to a film school( second degree/or master), or should i transfer??
I'm interested in three different programs..
Radio film and tv at northwestern, U of Miami, Emerson college and LMU
Film and tv production at USC, UCLA, Chapman, FSU, Biola, Columbia
or
Entertainment business at USC, Fullerton, Belmont, and UCLA( graduate)

    Is there any way you could graduate on time while also taking classes (electives, technical electives, etc.) that would be useful/required if you decided you wanted to do the Masters or either of the two undergraduates?

    In this business, it's not what you know but who you know. Keep that in mind when you pick a college.

    ^^^^ you right connections are vital in this industry..My Top choices( USC, Northwestern UCLA) are schools that have a very impressive netword of connections... but as we all know these are Very selective schools..the other schoosl i'm considering are decent..i checked their faculty and they all have people with extensive experience working in the industry and some that are really overacomplised in the medium.
