Like so many others, I am feeling a little battered and bruised by the bfa process. My D applied to 10 programs in both acting and MT, was "re-directed" by 6 (CCM, U Minn, Ithaca, Otterbein, BW, and Rider) waitlisted at 2 (Boston and CMU) and accepted (Yeah!!) at Syracuse and NYU. Our family plans to visit both schools in the next two weeks- but I was wondering if people could comment on what they see as strengths and weaknesses of each program. My D is leaning towards NYU- based on the fact that it is a "famous" program, and she knows a couple of kids who are there now, and have been accepted for next year. I'm not sure her concept is the best criteria for choosing a school......and most of all, I don't want her to make her decision before she looks!
One particular concern of mine- my D is the kind of person who thrives in a small setting, and the size of Tisch (relative to other bfa programs) is a particular concern of mine.
Any thoughts would be most welcome
