Major: Music - Performance (This Major's Salary over time)
The music program (conservatory) is okay. Nursing and pharmacy are apparantly good. But I would only go on scholarship—in the music program they cut corners and let unqualified people teach classes because they are already on the payroll teaching private lessons. I'm in the opera program and it's improving, I love my private teacher (Ruhadze), but I think many of my other teachers have no idea what they're talking about. There is enough good faculty though to get a good education, you just have to seek them out and figure out who to listen to. The standards and expectations of most of my classes were much lower than what I'm used to. The music theatre program is very good—we have a pretty strong theatre department. The campus is small and pretty beautiful, right next to a park. I would go if they give you a lot of money.
