Help Me Choose: Tisch, BU, USC, UCLA!

<p>Hi, my name is Ally and I am a set design major. I have been accepted to several colleges among them, NYU, BU, USC, and UCLA all for set design. I have also been priority waitlisted at Carnegie Mellon (crossing fingers on that one). I need some outside opinions both on my potential debt and the caliber of the school. </p>

<p>NYU--> graduate with 36k in loans
BU--> graduate with 55k in loans
USC--> graduate with 18k in loans
UCLA--> graduate with the 50k I didn't spend in my pocket</p>

<p>Btw, I would like to work in both theatre and film. </p>

<p>So which is the best choice?</p>

<p>You're full ride at UCLA?</p>

<p>I'd say NYU just because it's a reasonable amount to pay AND you have the luxury of being close to wonderful theatres and be able to make really good industry connections.</p>

<p>No, but it is super cheap for me to go to UCLA. </p>

<p>I am definitely leaning towards Tisch at the moment. BU seems to expensive for what it's worth. If I had to pay 55k for Carnegie then that is a different story. </p>

<p>Any more ideas? Perhaps from someone who went to one of these programs as acting or tech or whatnot.</p>

<p>i would say Tisch's after all the greatest film school nationwide.. ..and how do u think of Northwestern, comparing to NYU? I have been accepted to both and can't make decision now</p>

<p>Karlawang-- What are you planning to major in at NU and NYU? What did you get for financial aid? I think those two questions will help you decide.</p>

<p>So BU is out. It is between USC, UCLA, and NYU. I am visiting this weekend but any more opinions?</p>
