DO not attend unless you are 100% sure you will be at the top of your class, are able to move to LA or New York and work for free as a intern for at least a year, and can do it without getting into debt. Only a very very small percent of graduates go on to make careers as a audio engineer. If you are unable to leave and dedicate yourself 100% to this and work for free DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Another option wuold be if you are a entrepreneur and plan to market your skills on your own when you get done with schooling (and have the cash to get up and running)

It is an amazing school with great people but overpriced and it moves quick.

Good luck,

This school focuses more on being hands-on, but with online schooling they provide guidance and chat-rooms to teach students.
CRAS was a fun experience for me. Although most instructors and classes are great, I would not necessarily recommend this school to a friend. For starters, the 11 month $23K tuition is insane. The instructors have a very "loose" way of teaching their classes. You will encounter many weird rules as well. Once you finish the academic portion and move on to your required internship, the coordinators don't help you much and you are kind of on your own. They focus too much on the studio recording side while only having small courses on other parts of the audio industry like, broadcast, audio business, and post production. In the end of the day, if you strictly want to pursue studio recording and live sound, then CRAS is the perfect fit hands down. But if you want to get into broadcast and post production audio or anything else, the it is better to look at a different school or college in that case.
