I hope you all found Week One of Conservatory Boot Camp useful and interesting! Ideally, you have an idea of what you want to major in, or at least a little more direction than you did previously.
This week, you will start to narrow down your list of potential schools. This was one of the most difficult parts of the college audition process for me; at the time, I was a 17-year-old high school student living in an isolated area of the country, so I didn't really know what to look for in a university or conservatory or how to decide which schools to focus my energy and time on. I wished that I had more guidance and exposure to all the different options there are, as well as a way to organize all the information I was gathering.
I wrote this chapter with my high-school-age self in mind; you'll find an organizer for your potential schools as well as some reflection exercises to help you figure out what kind of environment you want to be in for the next four years.
