Majors: I have never had an internship but I definitely want one. I'm interested in music production, so to intern at a record label or even a radio station would be ideal not to mention amazing. Though it may be difficult to obtain such a position, I would still go for it because in my line of work, perseverance is key.

Weather: When it rains, we play music inside. When its really nice out, we all enjoy going for walks, hanging out at the docks, and busking.

Diversity: There are so many people from different backgrounds, that its hard to pinpoint any form of a dominant group. This creates a comfortable atmosphere for everyone.

Campus Strictness: The administration at Berklee is quite liberal, and there is a "laissez faire" type of philosophy that can be sensed. Its up to each individual to choose their destiny.

Greek Life: Berklee is a highly multicultural school, and most groups that you see are quite mixed. I haven't seen any "Greek" cliques, or anything of the like.

Academics: Berklee provides such an amazing musical education, because it allows the student a great degree of freedom to pursue his/her personal interests and ambitions. In my program (Professional Music), I get to combine a wide variety of musical areas such as Music Technology, Music Business, Harmony, and Jazz Performance. This is ideal because I am now becoming equipped with skills that will be applicable to a number of different career paths - such as Music Production, Music Business/Management, Performance, Private Instruction, and Composition/Arranging.

Academics: Each of the professors at this school are certainly professionals in their respective fields. Furthermore, each of them are genuinely passionate about what they're doing - and I think this is what makes the biggest difference. The workload may be massive at times, but the professors are always willing to provide us with extra help and instruction, so nothing is impossible to achieve at this school. The type of education we receive is largely practical, and we often get to see and work with some of the best in the music scene.

Scholarships: Berklee is terrible at giving out aid. It's all based on your initial audition.

Off-Campus Housing: It's much more worth it to pay half of the housing price and live off-campus!

Facilities: NETWORKING! Such a diverse population that can't be matched anywhere else...It's the best place to basically ensure you will leave knowing a great deal of people from all areas of the world.
