Alternatives to Juilliard for Performing Arts Majors?

Hey everyone, I'm super passionate about pursuing a career in the performing arts and I've been considering Juilliard as my dream school. However, I know it's incredibly competitive. Could y'all suggest some alternative colleges that are also great for performing arts majors? Looking for a place that offers solid acting or music programs, preferably with a vibrant arts community. Thanks!

Hey there! I totally get your situation – Juilliard is a dream for many, but it's always good to have a solid list of alternatives. My nephew was in a similar boat and found a fantastic fit at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU; they have strong programs in both acting and music. Also, consider looking into the Berklee College of Music in Boston if you're leaning towards music. For acting, schools like Northwestern University and the University of Michigan have reputable programs with an active campus life revolving around the arts. Don’t forget the Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Each university offers something different and unique, so it's worth checking them out to see which aligns with your goals and interests. Break a leg with your auditions and applications!
