    Point park is an excellent university and has a reputable track record. The fact that it surrounds an array of fortune 500 companies gives the students a competitive edge concerning employment and employment connections.

    The tuition here is high! I've heard that the financial aid for non-copa students is a lot more, but for those in the performing arts its quite high.

    The Conservatory has HUGE scholarships available, ask for them, beg for them and you will be rewarded. If you are not getting scholarships it may not be, in my opinion, worth the hefty price tag.

    Pros: Friendly, helpful, professional professors. Small class sizes. A lot of scholarships are awarded. Cons: Food & eating establishments, Parking (there is no student lot), no usable swimming pool. I would say that if I were to come to this school in ten years, then hopefully I would be able to utilize the new academic village that they have in store for their campus and downtown. As of right now, I feel somewhat slighted for the money that I am paying.
