Class of 2024 No BFA MT Looking at Plan B/Gap Year
Coming down the wire for final results of BFA MT auditions and it's looking like my D will not receive any acceptances. Heartbreaking given the amount of work put into this process! She has some BFA Acting options, loads of BA Theater options and is on a few MT waitlists, but she's already starting to consider a gap year and reapplication next year with maybe a more equal emphasis on Acting and MT. Gulp! Should she just read the writing on the wall and come to grips with the likelihood that an insanely competitive MT career is not in the cards? I want to be supportive, but also don't want to re-live this. Looking for advice, pros and cons of each option from those (parents and students) who have gone down this road before, and camaraderie with those who are going through this experience this year. Thanks for the guidance and support!205 replies
