Look at me, I'm Rezie, I know all. Don't pursue your passion, kids!
when you go into music programs for college - it really isn't what you expect.
Who needs to research a program before signing up? Obviously my expectations should be met 100%, nothing could possibly go wrong! Oh, what's that? I don't enjoy the workload/teaching style/course layout/my classmates? I guess I should be sure to warn everyone that this particular path sucks.
Listen, kids, school is what you make of it. Go to college, don't go to college, whatever. If you do, pick something that interests you to study, and remember that you're not signing up for any specific career. I have former classmates from my theatre program who sell insurance, some who work with troubled kids, some who teach, some who tour the country. Others are living the dream and working in NYC. Most of them aren't in theatre at all.
If you go to school for engineering, or business, or psychology, who knows where you'll end up.
Even Chando has a wide variety of choices if he sticks it through. Maybe he gets a job driving a console at a recording studio, or he gets into live sound and sees a new rock band every week, or tours the country with a band, or working for a manufacturer of audio equipment.
You can do whatever you want with your knowledge and skills, don't let dipshits like sequenced tell you otherwise.
