My senior is considering applying to Cal Poly SLO for acting, but she’s trying to get a read on whether it’s a good choice — if it’s well-respected in the theater community, if their BA in Theatre Arts will give her a strong professional training as an actor. Does being a polytech school mean it’s less of a good fit for a non-STEM-focused student? Thanks for any insight.
ETA: We do get the difference between a BFA and a BA, and that’s not really a concern — she’s open to BAs, just wants to gauge how good a choice this BA is among the other options. Her stats are OK but not amazing: 3.69 unweighted, 1380, out of state.
