I am a high school senior applying for BFA acting. My list is as follows:
Emerson College, California Institute of the Arts, SUNY Purchase, Coastal Carolina, Pace University, DePaul University, Fordham University, Point Park University, Montclair University, Ithaca, and Salem State (safety).
I wanted to apply early action everywhere, because I am the type of person that wants to just get it done, rather than waiting around.
But...here's my dilemma. I am from the Boston area, and a lot of the schools I'm applying to are far away (ex. california, south carolina, illinois, etc), and what I'm confused about is...are the early action and regular decision audtions the same? Meaning, is it just the application that is early, and then the auditions are the early action and regular decision applicants combined? (sorry this wording is extremely confusing). The reason I ask this is because from what I can tell, all of the audtions for the schools I'm applying to take place at the beginning/mid of February. I haven't seen any audtions before that but I really want to apply early action to all of my schools.
So, I guess my official question is...can I send in my applications to all of the above schools by November 1st (early action), and then not audition until Febraury, and still be considered an early action applicant?
