Our daughter wishes to pursue musical theater, and we are looking for colleges with good/reputable programs within a one day drive. She is talented, but due to her father being in the military has moved numerous times and is currently in a very small high school in Northern Virginia. Her grades are good, good SAT, and has extensive involvement in community and school extra curricular activities. She has expressed interest in the following, in no particular order:
North Carolina School of the Arts
Carnegie Melon seemed a bit too overpowering for her. Same with New York. Obviously if things go well for her in college she would love to pursue graduate studies (Carnegie, Yale, London, New York) with the ultimate goal of performing...a dream of all musical theater majors I assume. We plan on taking her to as many colleges as possible for visits/auditions.
Are there any other colleges we may be overlooking? Any suggestions?
