Dear 100 Hour Board,
how hard is it to get into the music program? i heard its really competitive. Do you know compared to other majors how hard the program is?

Here's a brief run-down of what to expect.
You must audition. If they think you're good enough, they admit you as a "general music major" for your first year. During that first year, you take your general classes such as theory, sight singing, dictation as well as any pre-reqs for your degree program. You must get at least a C in all those classes.
At the end of your first year, you have some kind of mysterious "jury" process you must go through. (I picture it to be something like what Harry goes through at the beginning of Order of Phoenix.) If you do well enough in this, congrats. You're in.
For more info, call the school of music advisement center at 422-3777.
