undergrad and graduate work - where are you going?

Recommended Posts

what major? or undecided?

My scholarship dictates that I must at the least minor in music. I'll probably major, but we'll see how it goes. Richmond doesn't have the most comprehensive music program, but the few music majors they have get a lot of small or private classes. The main composition professor is very into electroacoustic and gets commissions all the time, so I think things will work out nicely. They also have a great music tech lab because of him, and I'm told he just got a big grant to expand it.

Graduated, didn't get into grad school.

Maybe I'll record some originals and get signed since I'm not doing anything else at the moment.

did you do classical guitar for undergrad? or what?

just did this last fall. very hard, lots of work, incredibly rewarding. i still go back for concerts, and i'm still Mr. Burr, even when i go with the band directors and half the band to Buffalo Wild Wings afterwords to watch the sabres games =)

Yeah, I'm kind of ridiculously excited for the fall. I know where my high school strings placement is, and I'm going to have a friggin army of string players - there are two high schools in the district with a total of like 300 string players or something ridiculous. Still haven't heard about my elementary general music placement yet though...that should be fun too though.

I just graduated last December with a Bachelor's in History and Sociology with a concentration in Criminal Justice (I'm dual wielding!!!). My professors really pushed me to go on to graduate school, insisting I needed to teach... but I really don't want anything to do with it.

I've been doing a combination of graphics and research/writing for musuem exhibits for the last few years (just put in a 50-foot wall-mounted timeline of the Roman Empire with actual coins of each emperor along with a short biography). I figure if I'm going to continue with either one, it's going to be the graphics (which I originally started doing entirely as a hobby, with no formal training). Sort of makes me wonder what the heck I just spent the last several years at school for... :?

Hahahahaha. I majored in cellular and molecular biology. I mostly focus on genetics.

It's either get a full time job or give it a shot at music. Since I'm currently unattatched for the first time in my life I'll give it a shot.

I'll be attending Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston where I'll most likely be majoring in computer science. Music isn't part of my plans but I'll still be bringing my guitars to college. Boston has a pretty rockin' music scene. Who knows what could happen?

Freshmen at Southern Virginia University. Registration is paid, and AT LEAST half of my tuition and room and board is covered by renewable scholorship. Oh, and I'm majoring in Music Composition/Theory(with a possible minor in education).

Heh, I wish I applied to UCLA for grad school before. Oh well, can't complain too much, my current university is excellent as well.
