2020 PRE-SCREEN THREAD

tableforsixtableforsix 91 replies3 threads Junior Member
Hello, music major hopefuls!

This thread is designed to catalog our confirmed audition dates after receipt of prescreening results. This will allow us to celebrate each other's successes, give future hopefuls an idea of when prescreen results roll in for a variety of schools, and even arrange meet-ups for common audition dates if so desired. Please keep sidebar conversations to a minimum.

In previous years, @Mezzo'sMama rather generously kept track, so many thanks there. I'm going to paste her succinct and clear instructions below:

Please send me a PM with pre-screen acceptances or acceptance of an audition date if no pre-screen is required. Let me know when you have received a firm offer of the date. By sending them via PM, it helps to keep the thread neat and allows you to flag it so that you're notified when something actually new is posted.

I will be updating the thread regularly and listing the new entries in color.

Remember to tell me what the instrument or voice type is and if you're reporting for your son or daughter and the degree sought (BM, BA, etc)

Best of Luck to Everyone!

    It has been pointed out that those with fewer than 15 posts cannot send a PM. If that's you, you can post here directly or get to posting to reach 15. :smiley:

    Hi @MedKey0803 ! The thread that akapiratequeen linked is from last year's prescreen, and you can look at the individual post dates to see when people started reporting prescreen results for each school.

    Looking at one post from mid-Dec (17th) shows some students with prescreen results already from NYU, USC Thornton, Northwestern, and U Mich. May vary by major, of course, but it looks like it won't be too long!

    Alright thanks.

    I also have another question (sry). So for USC, they say that you need to get into both the academic and the specific school you are applying to. What happens if you get into the general academic admission but not the specific school (if that made sense)? Do you just get put as undeclared or are you rejected altogether?

    @MedKey0803 : The question you’re asking is specific to Thornton I believe. Let’s say you’re applying for a perf major - You need to be accepted by Thornton. However that in itself doesn’t suffice - you need to be accepted by USC. If only the latter happens, you can attend USC and pick pretty much any major you want, typically in Dornsife. The engg. School (Viterbi) has its own acceptance criteria that you need to qualify for. Obviously Thornton hasn’t accepted you, so the best you can do is go for a minor in music performance.

    @mom2jw is that a prescreen or live audition? Or do you not do recorded prescreens for MADE (I confess I'm not familiar with that one).

    Anyway good luck!

    I am new, so please forgive any mistakes in this posting.
    My kid applied to 8 schools so far. Curtis still remaining, since the deadline is December 13th.

    Chapman confirmed on 12.2 and she will have and In-Person audition on 2.29.20

    Oh, she is a mezzo-soprano.

    Happy to have found this board. I am really stressed out with all the applications and waiting etc etc etc. You know the drill.
