    I studied in this school. Performance major is very nice, and there are a lot of great students in them. But CVM(Composing for visual media) is the most terrible major in this world. Teachers don't have any motivation to teach (For example, in 4 hours lecture, they explain about only homework for first 15 minutes, and they say "Do it" without teaching. And sometimes teachers show a free youtube video 1 hour instead of teaching. While we are watching video, only what teacher says is "Beautiful, simple, good sample). In generally, if we want to study composition, we have to study harmony and counter point and analysis, but no teacher doesn't (can't ) teach these fundamental things. It means they are con men. So even if you study hard, you can't go next step any more. Because they can't teach anything important that high level colleges require. I don't wanna see a person who faces same situation as me. So my advise is that if you want to study composition, you must not go to CVM!

    At Lacma every department wants to give the student the best experience. The housing department was really present when I moved to Los Angeles, I was also given help with the visa process, admissions etc
    My major is really complete. I'm also glad that my classmates are from all over the world, being in contact with international students opens your mind and creativity is enhaced
