    I have been lucky enough to experience both the Hollywood and New York campuses. The two cities both have countless opportunities for learning because you are in the center of everything. In New York you can walk to times square and get student rush tickets for a show which are very reasonably priced, the school even gives out free tickets on occasion. The New York dorms are two blocks from central park which is a great place to just escape and work on homework. The Los Angeles school is a block away from Hollywood Boulevard and the Pantages Theatre is right down the street. Theatre Row is also not far, it's a simple trip on the Metro or Bus Line. Being centrally located is a great advantage and a necessary asset for this career.

    I studied at the NY campus, which was extremely useful for this profession. I got to see a ton of Broadway shows, especially since AMDA always has free tickets to different theater shows.
