My daughter was accepted to 2 programs and waitlisted at 2 programs, yet decided to attend Western Kentucky University which has an audition for the BFA after the 3rd semester. She decided to attend this school because she fell in love with the school and the program. She is beyond happy with her choice. This is a viable option for all those that have not had success with auditioned programs. If you would like more detailed information about the program, please send me a PM.
My daughter attends Western Kentucky University. I would be happy to answer any questions that you have. She is home for the summer so I can get the answer straight from her. The program at WKU is audition later as you probably are aware. My daughter is going into her sophomore year and will audition af the end of her next semester. She had 2 juries in her freshman year at the end of each semester. The first jury was a "get to know you" jury and the second jury was performance based where she received feedback. Her schedule is similar to what others have posted with 1 to 2 gen eds per semester. She loves the school and she can't wait to go back.
My daughter is a freshman at Western Kentucky University and absolutely loves it. She auditions for the BFA at the end of her 3rd semester. The first 3 semesters she is classified as "seeking admission" to the BFA and takes all MT related classes with a few required gen ed classes. She also wanted the "traditional" college experience. WKU is an hour north of Nashville.
My daughter will audition for the BFA program at Western Kentucky in a few weeks. This is not a re-audition as mentioned above, but will be her first official audition for the program. She has had 2 juries at the end of her first 2 semesters; the 1st one was a "get to know you" jury where she was interviewed by a panel of professors on what her interests were; the 2nd jury was a performance jury where she received feedback on what she needed to work on for her BFA admission audition. It has been a very positive experience for her and she feels very supported by the professors. I'll know more in a few weeks and will report back. However, when I ask her about the number of students in her class auditioning for the MT BFA she has no idea. She may have a better idea once the next semester starts.
