    I wish our music department was larger than one prof (he's awesome, but he's just one guy, there's only so much he can do), but there are some cool cross-enrollment options with the New England Conservatory, and music is not the major I plan to make a living with. TBH if you're majoring in one of the big programs I mentioned above, you're getting the best deal - that's where the college's energy is focused and that's where its reputation and industry connections are strongest. We have a Music major, for example, but it just won't have the same strength as, say, a music major from St. Olaf or Juilliard. In fact, do this with every college you plan to apply to: take their course catalog and flip through it to see which majors have the largest amount of course offerings. Just go by the numbers. This is a pretty reliable guide to which majors are strongest at the school. I wish I had thought to do this when I was applying and making final admissions decisions. Another major factor, of course, is financial aid: the application fee was waived when I applied and I was fortunate to receive a considerable academic scholarship and grant funding. Simmons was the least expensive of my out-of-state college options. In my conversations I've gathered that many students here receive pretty good financial aid, but of course this will vary depending on your academics, your financial circumstances and where else you apply.

    Simmons is pretty great with scholarships doling out $20,000 per year to many students and offering 5-10 full tuition scholarships per year to incoming freshmen.

    The education is great, but not worth the immense amount of stress and pain you endure throughout the year.

    Apply for scholarships! Simmons is a very very expensive private school. YOu get a lot for what you pay for, as far as classes and professors and students offered, but the price tag is what it is.
