4 College Freshman

Academics: Berklee definitely boasts a good, thoroughly planned out curriculum. It helps the student go toward the path that he or she wants to take. However, sometimes, it seems to be too open ended and could cause a few students to get confused on which way to go.

Transportation: Berklee is right in the middle of Mass Ave. and in places that are easily spottable once you know the way around. I don't think a car is necessary to get to Berklee unless you live 30 minutes or farther away from school.

Parking: I'm not really sure about the parking spaces because I don't drive to school. However, from what I've heard, it seems like the parking spaces around Berklee are not very convenient and most of them are quarter parking. This causes people a lot of annoyance. I believe that there can be a better way to go about with the parking spaces around Berklee.

Scholarships: I did not have enough money for this school. I was not awarded enough financial aid. My mother had to take a loan.

Off-Campus Dining: You can get fast food, pizza, vegetarian, restaurants. Alot of places you can get a student discount with your id.

Off-Campus Housing: Dorms are cool and everything but living off campus is truly amazing. I live in a house with five other people and luckily we all get along very well which is rare. The only cons I can think of for living off campus is paying rent but that's something that's going to happen sooner or later. Ironically enough, it cost more to stay in the dorms than it does living where live. Hopefully if you live off campus you will have a good relationship landlord. That will ultimately make or break your living situation.

Guys & Girls: A majority of the students at Berklee dress very well. To tell the truth its a little intimidating due to the fact that I never was a very stylish person when it came to clothes. But no one will ever look down on you because your outfit isn't top notch. Everybody at Berklee is also very friendly; there is never a reason to be shy around a Berklee student because they may scarily talented but will also be more than happy to talk with you.

Majors: I am very happy with my major. At first I didn't realize exactly what I wanted out of my Berklee experience but now I can say that I am confident in what I'm doing. As a Professional Music major, you are allowed to have one or two musical fields to concentrate on (in my case its performance and production) and then with your adviser you discuss what you need to do to reach your career goal and make sure you are on track. In my opinion this the best major at Berklee College of Music because it really prepares you for a career in the music industry.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my major, Professional Music, was easier than I thought it would be. All it involved was sitting down with an adviser, discussing what my plan was and which courses I needed/wanted to take in order to reach my graduation requirements; simple as that. Now, just because the process of getting in wasn't all that challenging doesn't that you shouldn't work hard. If the staff notices that you are just trying to coast without doing much work, you may not get admitted into your designated major. So stay focused, passionate and driven and I'm sure you'll get in.

Diversity: Berklee College of Music is one of the most diverse schools I have ever seen. If you walk into a classroom you will see a student from Japan, one from Israel, one from Puerto Rico, and the list goes on. Not to mention many students who are openly gay and are very accepted by the rest of student body. I am happy to say that I have never seen any act of discrimination or predudice since I started attending Berklee 3 years ago. To tell the truth, I'm not surprised how diverse and accepting Berklee is considering how music brings people of all colors, creeds, and walks of life together.

3 College Junior

Administration: Authority at Beklee is fairly lenient; staff and security don't make a big deal about venturing off campus too far or making too much noise in dorms which makes sense considering it's a music school. The only thing I can think of that Berklee is not very tolerant about is drugs and alcohol which is a no-brainer, most schools aren't.

Local Area: Berklee is located in downtown Boston which is perfect because I love the city environment. The area is always very alive and vibrant no matter what time of day and it's never a dull moment. Not to mention plenty of places to eat, the Prudential Center (mall in Boston) is within walking distance as well as a park called the Back Bay Fens where most students go to plays sports and just hang out.

Party Scene: Bars and house parties are where its at
