San Francisco Conservatory of Music Reviews
The school forces you to live on campus to fill their beds for part of the time because otherwise they will lose money on their dorms. The rent for the tiny micro studio apartment is higher than what you could find in the city on your own and the neighborhood is one of the unsafest. Don't get me wrong, the faculty are great. The conservatory works hard to blind you into coming though less than 70% of students ever finishing.
