I'm 25 years old this year. I did 3 years of college -- actually, undergraduate law school in the National University of Singapore, itself a top-10 law school in the world. I didn't graduate, left school, and ran a small software business for 2 years (up until now). I have sizeable savings to self-fund my education.
I graduated from Raffles Institution, possibly the best high school in the whole of Asia (source: WSJ). My SAT I/II scores are 2,310/2,400 and 2,400/2,400 respectively. They were taken in 2007, however. My high school grades were superb, too -- I graduated top 5% of my class. I maintained a full scholarship throughout college till right before I left.
I want to go to Los Angeles, California, by hook or by crook on a student's visa. I don't care if it's a community college, 2-year college, apprentice school, drama school, anything -- I just want to be in Los Angeles legally as a student. And then go for casting auditions whenever I have the time while I pursue my education on the side.
I'm self-funding, so cost is a major issue; unless there is some financial aid scheme I might qualify for, I'm looking for a cheap school. Prestige is almost immaterial. Bottom line: I'm looking for a cheap and easy-to-get-into school to study acting in Los Angeles, California.
