    Overall you do get your bang for your buck even though the cost of the school is very high. Some of the areas that lack are the food and dinging because we should be able to eat great tasting food at least on a normal basis. Another area that lacks is room and board because we have no air conditioning in two of the dorms which presents a problem with Southern California weather.

    Tuition is expensive but yet they are there to see you finish fast and learn and you get to know your professors on an individual basis and they will know your name.

    Expensive, but they give a lot of academic and talent scholarships. You can get money for being smart or for being talented in theatre tech, acting, singing, and instrumental music (not sure if that's still around).

    I feel it is a little overpriced comapred to other school's that are just as credited. Despite that your receiving a great private education with 1on1 attention from teachers.
