I am officially headed to Florida State University/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training in the fall. If all goes according to plan, I'll have my MFA in Acting and be Equity in April 2011. And I'm ecstatic. Just wanted to share. I'm Going to Grad School
I starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

Good choice. Can't wait to hear more from you in the future.

I haven't had to take the GRE yet... I don't know if I'll have to or not. I haven't even applied yet, but they told me that the application process is very much a formality.

Congratulations :)

Congrats! all grad schools are equal no matter what the cost

(and don't worry about the GRE if you have to take it -- I barely remember taking it, but I remember it was cake)

Don't worry papa, it's not really FSU. The MFA Acting program is in Sarasota. The main campus is in Tallahassee -- 4 hours away. It's really quite separate.

Oh, and about "all grad schools are equal no matter what the cost"... There is no cost for me. They're giving me a full tuition waiver and paying me a stipend.

It's is rare that Performance based post graduate schools require the GRE. I have only come across one program that requires it and that is Indiana University.

Thanks, Flowery! I didn't get a call today...maybe tomorrow.
I think most grad school programs in Florida state school give their students a full ride. I know the English dept. at UF does (no stipend though) but you have to teach a couple of classes each semester. Will you be teaching, Flowery?

I didn't have to take the GRE when applying for grad schools to get my master's, but I DID have to take it for the Ph.D. program at NYU. So I seriously doubt you'll have to, FF.

Besides, they offered you a full scholarship already...they don't care about a dumb test!

No, I will not be teaching, since the MFA program is so far away from the undergrads. My stipend is purely performance-based.

To AnnaK - I went to a tiny women's college with an unheard of theatre program.

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. :)
