If you (parents, read 'your kid') are ultimately going to be rejected by a school, which of these audition processes would you rather have:
1. 5-7 minutes with an auditor/auditors who neither look at you nor talk to you (and you know before you leave the building that you are out)?
2. 15 or more minutes of audition and conversation with an auditor/auditors who act friendly and interested in you (maybe you leave with hope)?
3. 15 or more minutes of audition and conversation with an auditor/auditors who act a bit harsh while reworking your material (maybe you leave without hope)?
Would your opinion change about the audition process if you ultimately got acceptances from all three types of audition? Would your final school choice be based in part on the audition process?
Parents, do you think your opinion differs from your kid's/Students, do you think your parent's opinion differs from yours? How would teacher's and coach's opinions align with yours?
