The hoarder in me hurts. I just recycled ten years worth of stage manager books that I’d been filing.
So, I went to Grad school straight out of undergrad. I had a handful of professional experience under my belt and a LOT of educational. However, there are people in my program who had only done three shows prior to starting at CU.
It’s about presentation and WHY you want to go to graduate school.
Columbia is great because of its location and who the professors are.
However, I was also a huge fan of CCM.
I hope I helped. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
