4 College Sophomore

Academics: i am a music business management and pro music dual major. I am mainly focusing on business with the addition of some extra performance classes. This will be my first semester taking classes within my major.

Academics: Most students agree that core music can be a pain sometimes, but it really rounds you out as a musician as a whole. There are definitely some faculty to stay away from and a lot of faculty that you definitely want to study with, but that's the same at most schools. The percussion faculty is phenomenal and I wish that I could study with every teacher there.

Off-Campus Housing: Back Bay, the area where Berklee is, is pretty pricey and the apartments are small. Moving outside of Back Bay, the properties are larger and are less expensive, but then you have to commute to school. Brookline is a very beautiful area-a lot of older people with families and jobs live here. Allston is where a lot of college students live. You can get houses out here and it's also where Berklee's Fordham Road practice facility is located. Allston is definitely very affordable, but the properties aren't always the best.

Scholarships: It can be tough to get any financial backing for school, but all depends on how much you care about your education. To elaborate, a lot of the scholarships that Berklee has to offer are performance based, so students need to be prepared and more than willing to showcase their talents; That means practicing for hours, and being as professional as possible.

Diversity: The school was somewhat prominently one race, but there existed a small, diverse percentage.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus dining at my high school was not anything special, but it was satisfactory most of the time.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: When I auditioned to enter the school, I was told that I would be considered for a scholarship based on how I performed during the audition and subsequent interview. However the only financial aid I was offered was a $1,000 loan from the Federal Government which I would have been required to pay back with interest, even when they saw that I had the adequate amount of money to pay for my first year of Berklee. I am now unable to apply for another scholarship from the college until I attend my third semester which I might not be able to attend due to financial hardship.
