|Students who got into LU say:|
Essay (5) |
| | Essays are very important in the application process.
LU students are a certain type. The school does not require a test score to get it, but they expect the other aspects of the application (especially the essay) to speak for you. If you are passionate and have a good high school track record, you will be fine. The conservatory is much more competitive to get into, as is to be expected. Even if you don't get into the BMus program, you can still take private lessons and play in a wide variety of ensembles, or just audition again. Either way, it's a win-win.

Be original. I had solid grades, pretty good test scores, and had a job in high school. But I also wrote a kick-ass essay for my application, interviewed, visited, and made clear that I'm not a boring kid. Students in my class have created new languages, been in the army, and written novels. One kid helped baboons in Africa. Within freshman year we've put up solar panels. Basically, everyone's a little quirky. It's necessary.
