Good point. I'm sure many teach, or work in universities or with music programs. I would suspect few go on to a performing career. Regardless, my point was that if that thinking were followed (worrying about the debt first and foremost), most would not attend in the first place. That's not a position I would support. Education and passion could be followed, and other career choices can be made subsequently. I suspect plenty of successful people have a career that doesn't follow their original discipline of study.

To the OP, if you don't mind me asking, where else did you apply or have thought of applying? I would look at other lesser-known schools such as Cedarville University (Dr. John Mortenson is who you want as your teacher), Northwestern University, California State University Long Beach, California State University Northridge, California State University East Bay (Dr. Omri Shimron is a wonderful teacher), Oberlin Conservatory, Hochschule für Musik - Theater und Medien Hannover, Michigan University, Georgia State University, and Florida State University. The aforementioned schools are all very wonderful and I feel you will advance just as well if you were to apply to the more prestigious schools like Mannes or Eastman (or Juilliard, also, you won't be in too much debt because who wants student debt anyway??).

@ PianoJaycee

From my experience auditioning for undergraduate programs and graduate programs I would say that the Beethoven may be a little "lightweight" for some of the more prestigious schools. Let me be clear that I'm judging everything based off of repertoire alone - how you play and interpret can go a long way in increasing your chances at admission.

I auditioned to Juilliard and many U.S Conservatories close to 10 years ago now and I'll give you an example of what my repertoire choices were for my undergraduate auditions:

Bach A-flat Major P+F from Book I
Beethoven Op. 2 No. 3
Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody No.12
Liebermann Gargoyles
Chopin Op. 10 No. 4
Rachmaninoff Op. 33 No. 6

Granted, looking back now, I would have made several different choices to my repertoire. One thing when speaking with faculty at Juilliard afterwards I gathered was that they felt the 12th rhapsody was still a little lightweight in comparison with the rest of my program.

Feel free to drop me a private message if you have any questions or to talk to someone who's still persuing degrees currently
