Hi, I know there are other threads on college, but none of them got to the questions I have. Next year will be my senior year of high school and I'm making some sad attempts at trying to figure out college. I would prefer a four year college with strong academics as well as a really strong tech theatre program. I'm really just looking for the best college I can, I've got a 4.0 and strong test scores along with over 15 shows of experience, so getting admitted isn't my first concern. I have a few names in mind, but one can only get so much information from their propaganda pamphlets. I want to major in either lighting design, set design or stage management, I haven't quite decided yet. I've heard good things about North Carolina School of the Arts, but I'm worried that it doesn't have much of an academic program if I wanted to minor in something other than theatre. So far I'm looking at Emerson in Boston and Webster in Missouri, but I haven't heard any first hand opinions of the schools. I've also heard of DePaul in Chicago, but I don't know much about their tech programs. So far Emerson is my favorite. I'm just curious about any opinions you may have about the schools I mentioned and if I've left any notable ones out. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
