    Here are some of the best Universities for Acting:

    -NYU (Tisch)- Alec Baldwin, Adam Sandler, Angelina Jolie, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Idina Menzel

    -Yale- Merryl Streep, Paul Newman, Liev Schreiber

    -DePaul

    -CMU

    -BU

    -NCSA

    -Purchase

    -USC

    -Emerson

    -Chapman

    -UCI

    -CSUF

    -Cal Arts

    -UCLA

    Do you need a BFA/MFA degree to act? Nope. Will it help? maybe…

    I majored in both business and music in college. The business degree was my best decision for many reasons. Because of it I have been more successful than my colleagues who have either started the same time as I did or have been doing this much longer. Thanks to my business degree, I have been able to successfully market myself, network effectively, be more professional, avoid scams, know tax loopholes/write offs, etc. It has also helped me produce multiple streams of income so I can pursue acting because I enjoy it and NOT as a source of income.

    This is called show BUSINESS, not show-screwing around.

    Also, I believe college is about experiencing as much as you can. Audit as many classes outside of your major and get involved with campus activities. Part of acting is living the life. Get a rich college experience so you have a good story to tell through your experiences.

    My beef is with year+ institutions like AADA and BFA/MFA programs is this. I believe in being more diverse in my training. The year+ programs can sometimes be like factories where they churn out actors who are taught pretty much the same thing through a structured curriculum. What might work for one person, will NOT work for a different person.

    Also, a lot of the conservatories and BFA/MFA programs have strict policies such as NOT being able to audition outside of their school or study at other places simultaneously. I think this is limiting to the actor. The actor should have the freedom to audition for outside projects and add to the current curriculum.

    Diversify your training:

    Scene Study/Acting (It varies. Some schools are not for everyone. Chubbuck, Eric Morris, and Howard Fine are not for people who aren't fans of Strasberg or Uta Hagen (ie. affective memory and substitution.) Playhouse West, Joanne Baron/DW Brown, and Acting Corps are more Meisner oriented. Try to audit these places and make sure if they're for you or not.

    Julliard- Thomas Gibson (Criminal Minds, Dharma and Greg). Zachary Quinto (Heroes, Star Trek 2009)

    NYU- Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally, Soap). Alec Baldwin (30 Rock, Pearl Harbor)

    Boston College- Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek Original and 2009). Amy Poehler (SNL, Baby Mama)

    I'm applying to the three above and they all seem fantastic. Besides those three Duke, Fordham, and UArts also have good performing arts programs.
