If you are attempting to get into the DT Program at Purchase, I want to stress that you should fill up your portfolio and take pictures of everything you do. You will be required to conduct an interview displaying all of your work, bring the best of the best. During this interview you will talk to the department heads and they will ask you to present and than will discuss the required reading which is always Tennessee Williams "Night of the Iguana", for the play come with ideas and topics you wish to discuss to keep the conversation going. :)

They say only 26% get in. Yet, I sent them the wrong essay. I still got it.
make sure your portfolio is good.

You don't have to be smart. The selectivity seems to be some kind of ploy. It must just happen in the conservatories.

I went to a community college and got my associates and than transferred to purchase my junior year. Its a hard school to get into, i think something like <30 % of people who apply get in, so you really need to have good grades, like a GPA of at least 3.5
