Why I Chose Juilliard
The main reason I chose Juilliard was because of the teacher I would be studying with. Thinking back on it, that was probably the only solid reason I had. Other factors certainly came in to play, like location, but overall the only thing that really mattered to me was the teacher!
Things that I think are important in making a decision about an undergraduate program:
- School environment- ideally a supportive environment that you think you would thrive in and would feel comfortable taking risks in.
- Location of school- if you could see yourself living in the city, also taking note of possible opportunities you could have outside of school in the city.
