From what I understand, several music schools and conservatories accept new students based on how many spots are open in their respective instrument/voice part. Do any schools have this information available? Is there any way for me to know how many spots a school has available for the following year? for a bit of background that may help, I'm a contralto, and a few schools I'm looking at Include Curtis, Juilliard, and the Cleveland Institute of Music (although I'm not getting my hopes up about any of them lol). I've heard that Contraltos typically have a higher chance of getting in compared to other sections because it is a fairly rare voice part, but I'm not sure if that's actually true.
