    @2427Mom Majority of school release information before the Christmas Break. I saw that USC, NECM and maybe even SFCM are doing that.

    @MezzoMama, wow, that really was imbedded in there! Good detective work.

    I clicked the link for info on both the jazz and choral auditions and I believe it doesn't have the same info (though I could have missed it). Hopefully though our results will be released around the same time.

    I think they gave the classical voice applicants more precise info because they recommend you bring along your own pianist (!) or hire someone from Thornton. With jazz instrumentalists, Thornton provides the rhythm section to play along, so maybe they felt they didn't need to give a time frame? In any case, it's different departments. Good to know though! The waiting is harder than I imagined to would be. :( But I'm not really a patient person lol.

    @Doransa Thanks! D got her app for Mannes in Oct, so maybe that's why she got a response so early. Hang in there! What's your Son's major?

    By the way, we're trying to make travel plans for the Mannes audition. Does anyone know whether Mannes has a long audition day or is it just go in audition and you're done?

    @flutyMcFluteface My son is applying to music composition. Hoping to hear some news by the end of this week. If we do not hear anything, it will be a very long winter break. He seems very calm, studying for midterms. Funny but it helps him. I would be more anxious. I am so glad he has a calm personality.
