"Pros: great individual teachers! Cons: Virtually no financial aid for CCPA (Chicago College of Performing Arts), whereas students in other university programs and degrees did receive more substantial financial aid (I did not find this out until shortly before I graduated). Administrative staff in both the university and CCPA are slow and rarely helpful. My degree program itself was pretty abysmal. It is advertised as Orchestral Studies, but I only had one audition workshop class (2 semesters) and the orchestra program and programming was insulting and embarrassing."

"I believe Roosevelt University's Vocal Performance Master's program is both nurturing and challenging. The teachers are incredibly knowledgable, considering many of them have had careers as vocal professionals. They're not too keen on handing out ample scholarship money. As a graduate student, I would NOT recommend living in the dorms in the Wabash Building. Trust me, if you're going to grad school, you've outgrown undergraduate shenanigans."

"The best part of the voice program at Roosevelt is the faculty. They are incredible musicians and teachers, and their knowledge of not only the academia but also how to handle one's career are wonderful resources. The music facilities are beautiful, but the university should be doing more to help one of their most prestigious programs, as with CCPA. Although it is worth it, the tuition is expensive, and scholarship opportunities are limited. Overall, I am extremely happy with my experience at Roosevelt University."
