    Well now that full sail is full sail university... it must be better? right?....
    I know a few people that have been through columbia's production department and they all are working. Are you looking to do theatre or more concert/mixing work? Any desire to go into recording?

    500 to apply, that is crazy talk. I think I paid less that 100 dollars in fees for all the schools that I applied to and that included the one I only applied to because my girlfriend was going to school there (not the school I'm going to now BTW).

    Id like to do concert mixing, but be able to do theater, since thats what alot of my friends are going into. i really like how nescomm looks, fullsail is still a posibilty, but ive heard really bad things on people getting jobs. Im also willing to go to canada (oiart) i have 6 years of mixing under my belt (going on 7), any schools that look for experince would be great. Heres the link for nescomm http://www.nescom.edu/ if any one knows any more about them let me know, and im open to any other schools

    Have you checked out SAE? It's not a full-size college so you can't room on-campus, but the Audio Technology Program they provide (New York campus' numbers) is totaled at $18,950 and includes an Apple laptop with tons of audio software on it. They have campus around the United States, as well as around the world for that matter.

    Some, but not all campuses provide degrees, but they all provide diplomas.

    I also believe it to be a 3-semester program or something of that nature; not a 4-year program. Unfortunately I cannot double-check that as I've looked through their materials and their website and was unable to find that info again.
