I am a senior and have been looking at colleges. I wanted to get some more opinions, even though my applications are mostly done and all...
I am going for a BA or BFA (depending on the school) with my concentration in lighting.
The schools I have looked at:
-Univeristy of California, Irvine
-Southern Oregon University
-University of Northern Colorado
-what else can I add to my list?
And more recently, University of Northern Colorado, not because they are up to par with schools like NCSA, but because that is one school I know I can get into no matter what. The other schools, while I have good grades/scores, they depend more on portfolio/interview.
I have looked into Purchase, NYU, Carnegie Mellon, etc, and while they have great theater programs I did not like the "feel" of those schools. I do want to enjoy a bit of the "college experience" while gaining the necessary skills to transfer into a career after college.
So, does anyone have any input on CalArts, Irvine, Northern Colorado, Southern Oregon? And what other ones can I look at?
I have looked at so many recently, my brain is frazzled. So, outside opinions would be greAT.
Thanks so much!
