I am high school senior who recently auditioned for college. I was considering several major conservatories (Eastman and Peabody). My teacher is a graduate of Eastman and he didn't think I would have much trouble getting accepted. I ended up auditioning at a local university for financial reasons, thinking that I could get a much better scholarship there than at a conservatory. I was accepted, but when I received the scholarship information a couple days ago, I was informed that the university had received an exceptionally large number of highly talented applicants who had taken up all the scholarship money the school had to offer. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to pay for college? If so, should I go for this university or should I wait a year and try for Eastman? I'm not exactly the next Heifetz, but I'm a competent player and I would like to be a performance major. And yes, I have submitted the FAFSA. Any help is appreciated.
