American University musical theatre major

<p>Hi guys! This is my first post on College Confidential so here goes. I’m a current high school student doing research on colleges and I became completely in love with American University and made it my top choice school. I want to be a musical theatre major and now my theatre teacher is really pressuring me to look into schools that offer BFAs or more prestigious and famous theatre schools. Can someone tell me how well AU prepares you for a career after college and what the musical theatre department is like? I’d really like to go there but my teacher is really pushing me to apply elsewhere instead of early admission to AU. Thanks so much!</p>
