"Juilliard is the perfect school to prepare me for my life as a composer. The ear training, music theory, and history, classes are rigorous enough to instill not only knowledge, but understanding. Most importantly, the connections made there are integral to making a career in composition. The only con is the expense of going to the school."

"Juilliard assembles the finest acting teachers in the field, and leads its students through a very rigorous curriculum that has been both artistically and personally rewarding. The hours are long, which does not leave much room for a social life. Also, the graduates are in the same classes as the undergraduate actors; while the younger students occasionally shed an interesting light on the craft and the material, the mix of ages is not always so comfortable, and I personally have felt that they hold back the development of the class as an ensemble. Meanwhile, the surrounding neighborhood (the Upper West Side of NYC) is very expensive, and offers few cheap options for dining out. The grad program itself is expensive, moreover, and with the job prospects for actors already slim, I fear that I will be paying off my loans for decades to come. On the whole, however, I'm very satisfied with the quality of the teaching, and I feel much better equipped to enter the marketplace with a degree from Juilliard."

"The Juilliard School is one of the top names in the country for a reason - every day I am blessed to get up and surround myself with brilliant artists from all over the world, from every walk of life, in almost every discipline of performing arts. My teachers are dedicated to helping us progress and delve deeper into ourselves to better our craft, and they know us all by name, habit, and even know our little quirks. They know what makes us who we are, and pay attention to us as individuals, not just the payers of yearly tuition. The price of this incredible training is, despite how much incredible help is given by financial aid and the administrative offices of the school, astronomical to an independent, unemployed student, especially due to its location in New York City. The price of living is constantly skyrocketing, and its hard to keep up without succumbing to the slippery slope of student debt. However, I wouldn't change where I am for the world - it was my personal legend, my destiny, to work, live, and create at The Juilliard School."
