Alright, so my roommate got cut from the theatre school at DePaul (note:this thread is not about that, please, let's not make another thread about how much people hate the cut) and she has now come around and is starting to figure out what she is going to do next year.
Um, problem is, it's the end of august, and she has come to me for a little advise, and I need to learn as much as I can in as little time as possible because orientation is in less than 2 weeks.
Stay at the regular school at DePaul and take academmic classe/ take outside improve/ audition for shows
Go to Columbia College (which she was accpeted to)
Time, time time! I am surfing through old treads but haven't found what I'm looking for. I know all about the mix of opinions on Columbia, but what I really need to know is what the classes are like. What classes do you take? How do you sign up?
Also the tuition is REALLY confusing. It says online its 16000/year, but then her aid said it would be like 36000. This is confusing! I also read that they charge more per credit, but since she has not signed up yet, this couldn't be the case.
If anyone who goes there or knows things about what I have asked, I would REALLY REALLY REALLY apreciate it. I really want her to go there because she is a great actress and could stand out and kick butt, but this is all just so frustraiting and confusing and she works two jobs and it's hard to find time.
