I'd love to get my Masters at UNT or something. Julliard or Berklee would be cool too.

Julliard and Berklee aren't very similar, but you gotta a lot of time to decide which way to go in music.

I'm majoring in Music Performance and Composition from Butler University. May try to transfer to Indiana University - bloomington. Masters at Indiana University too.

I disagree. Julliard doesn't have an education program, which I think Mel wanted to go into, so I would recommend Berklee.

I also want to go to Indiana. I don't know when, I might transfer there after two years or get my Masters there, but I want to.

I have a friend who goes to Berkley (full ride on the jazz saxophone) and he says the majority of the people who go there are only there because they can afford the 45 grand a year, and a very small group of people (on full ride) are the actual talented musicians. Example: kid at my school is going there for guitar (has to pay full tuition). did not make a jazz ensemble this year (4 guitar players, one beginner and one advanced ensemble) and does not play guitar in a band, or any classical guitar. I had no idea he played until he told me he got into Berklee for guitar.
I play and teach music (sometimes even band music!)

I work in music tech and licensing.

Music is an art and positive energy.

Well, I'm sure that's not necessarily true. There IS an audition process after all.

Lol. Also, I'd recommend not getting your masters where you got your bachelors because a) working with the same instructor for 4 years=suckage and b) you want to work with as many people as you can (advice from my instructor).

Well, in that case, I'd probably go to Mizzou or UMSL.

Instrumental Musical Performance (Jazz Piano) hopefully. I'm thinking about going to my community college for a year (nice and cheap, 50% tuition) then transferring to UCF. After that, not quite sure.

Dang, you have to be godly to make it in performance. There's a ridiculous amount of competition. Unless you get into Eastman or Julliard, then you're probably fine.

I'm probably going to go for a Law degree at Wake Forest if I can get a scholarship :| If not, I may still go to Wake or UNC and get a Business Degree (or economics. Or statistics. Fml)

Well, I've changed what I'm going into now that I'm actually in college.

I'm currently undeclared, but at my next advising meeting, I'm changing to International Studies. I am going to graduate from Northern Kentucky University. I then want to go to law school to become a sports agent for foreign baseball players. I was thinking about going to the University of Chicago for law school, as they wanted me to go there for regular college, but if I like NKU enough(which I probably will), I'll probably wind up going to NKU's Chase College of Law.
There's no way around reality, and there's no way to fix things that have already happened. It is what it is, we are what we are, and there is nothing more to life than that. Rule #9.

If you go to Julliard, why would you NOT go into performance?

I'm interested in film (editing, composition, critique), music, history, astronomy, and architecture. I'm really not sure though what I want to do. I hope to go to either USC, UCLA, ASU, or Utah to pursue one of these areas.

I might get my general credits done at Weber State though.

I'm interested in physics, nuclear engineering, history, music, and accounting.

Out of all of these, I am the best at accounting, but I absolutely love engineering and astrophysics. I'm probably going to look at India University at Bloomington, Penn State, Saint Francis PA, and possibly USC.
