5 College Sophomore

Career Services: Ive spoken to graduates of this college about how their transition was between going to school and getting a job in their field. I was actually so surprised that not one of them had said they had a hard time,but rather they stressed just how much they were prepped during their final term to get their first job.The American Musical &Dramatic Academy lets the students in their last term focus on booking jobs so that when they leave the school they are walking into a job opportunity. Not only were they already prepared to walk into their first jobs after graduating but also that The American Musical and Dramatic Academy placed on having all the tools and career consultation before leaving the school.

Academic Experience: It's great to be taking acting at a performing arts school because you get the full creativity going since everything around you has something to do with performing. It's very inspiring. Coming here you get to audition right off the bat which isn't likely at other schools.

Academic Experience: Since my school is performing arts we offer musical theatre, dance and acting with the best teachers who are currently in the business. That's the best part because everything we are learning is current in the business.

Campus Resources: The great thing about my school is right when you get there as a first year student you can start auditioning for everything which at different schools won't let you till your second year.

Campus Resources: This school is set apart in many way. The students are friendly, the campus is small and for it to be so close to hollywood. I really didn't expect the students to be so layed-back. The teachers are very hands on with their educating and the kenostetic teaching styles help me, personally, to learn for the class. The demanding schedule help me stay focus and the supposrt of the staff is a motivating factor. In this facility I'm more than an I.D number I'm person and I'm a representation this school. I'm proud to be apart of this community that is AMDA

Campus Resources: The campus facilities are in good shape. The studios and library are obviously not brand new, but it is very easy to navigate and the staff are friendly. The rooms serve their purposes.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus has wifi for students to use. The staff are very reliable and puctual with e-mailing students back with problems or conscerns. The computer network isn't perfect but it runs great!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of this school is open to a certain degree I mean I wish it wa a little more flexibility. But this school runs a tight ship which is what I think you would definietly want in a school if yofur trying to be in the industry. You go to school everyday and you work hard on your craft with homework and rehsals and studies. Theres not alot of free time but its worth it in the end as you will be getting professional work in the arts industry after you graduate.

Campus Resources: The vine building is where we have all our resources such as computers and rehersal spaces for students such as actors and dancers. Its were we as the students of the arts go to practice and really sharpen our skills as soon to be working professionals.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The academics at my performing art school amda is superb. The teachers prepare you for the reality of the business of the arts which comes with hard work rejection and getting back up everyday and trying again. There's a personal relationship you build with your teachers as they really want to shape your attributes as an artist to the best possible for professional work. There has been numerous student alumni that have graduated from this school and have become succesful in the field.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not yet graduated so I am unsure of this topic

Academic Experience: I love being in musical theatre! the classes are challenging, but can be implemented into my field which is very exciting!

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes, it is difficult to get in contact with my adviser, but when I do get in contact with her, she is very helpful. AMDA is the school of my dreams, so the fact that most of my credits didn't transfer wasn't awful

Academic Experience: The professors are really there for you, but at the same time, you have to get yourself involved in the campus and the campus life there.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: This school I admit is super expensive to go too and they keep raising the price each year a little more. I have gotten a little financial help from the school , but not enough to help me keep going without a few jobs outside the school. I am recently taking a semester off and working full time so I can have enough money to get myself through the next four semesters.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Lots of the kids are very accepting to each other because we are all after the same thing. Of coarse there are some people that think they are better then everybody, but they just have a lot of confidence in my opinion. But all around this school is great.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Bursars office and financial aid office sometimes do not work together.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I understand the level of dedication and hard work that must be given by the students however, for someone who is not from the country, the tuition is really expensive and sometime is a headache indeed.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition here is a LOT. At the beginning I felt like I should of just went to a normal university, but truth of the matter is this school offers majors in our passions and BFA's which means we get to get a degree and no other school offers that. We learn so much that you have no choice but to Be prepared when you step out into the world and get ready to audition and land parts. So yes this education is worth it. The financial aid people are ready to help to. No one here wants to see anyone have to put there dreams on hold because of money.

Campus Resources: We don't have sports, but we do have a lot of clubs that you may be interested in. Everything from body classes in the morning like yoga, and conditioning, to dance classes that students lead etc. I love the fact that I as a student can request reaching my own class if I want to. Our library is pretty amazing. It holds all kinds of plays, and music for musical theatre students. All in all minus a few minute flaws our campus flows pretty nicely and you can find pretty much everything you need here.

Campus Resources: The fact that this is a performing arts school is amazing. You don't feel afraid to be different here because we're all artist. Everyone is accepting. The campus life isn't so bad. The piazza is my favorite. Being in sunny L.A. It's nice to be able to sit out there and study and what not. I love the fact that your teachers are probably going to be the ones to give you your first jobs, so it's wise to aim to be a great student. You never know who your teacher knows.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The computer labs and networks aren't too bad. They definitely work about 90% of the time. The printer is used a lot so it's best not to wait the day of to print something because odds are it won't work. The wifi in the dorms are horrible. Which is why it gets an A-.

Academic Experience: The professors are great. The curriculum is well put together. The class registration process is fine as long as you start early looking into your options and requirements. The workload is manageable as long as you actually do the work and do not wait till the last minute. There are also always rooms open for studying and practicing all things like piano, dance, voice,and acting.
