Thank you comment icon <html><head></head><body>Oliver, I think you mean college, not collage. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collage" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collage</a></body></html> Jared Chung, Admin
Thank you comment icon Oliver, there are over 5,000 colleges and universities in the United States. Can you tell us a little more about your needs so we can help you narrow it down? Are you bound to a certain geography? Are you looking for big schools or little schools? Do you want to be in an urban environment or in a suburban one? Give us a little more than just your desire to be an actor. Jared Chung, Admin

Some options in the Northeast United states:

- Emerson

- BU

- NYU Tisch

- SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Theatre Arts

- Syracuse


You didn't give us any constraints, so I'm just listing a few of the best. Obviously there are many others, and you need to target schools that are appropriate for your academic performance. The cost of these institutions is definitely something to be wary of. SUNY Purchase is cheaper because it's a state school, but the others are all private institutions, so they're typically between $30,000 and $60,000 per year. Acting doesn't really pay the bills, so be ready to work multiple jobs if needed to pay off the loans.

Thank you comment icon to be honest This scared me for a sec. however, i think what we have to do is look at the good in it, it's an investment i ourselves, which, is the best investment we can make, and if we truly love this career path, thats a risk we can take. it's gonna be hard work, any way you slice it, working multiple jobs? ehh, wouldn't expect any less...plus, if you're serious about acting, you need to look a little deeper for your "why." Money will come, but if thats your reson, you'll become impatient and you'll never last. Shawn
