I graduated from Berklee many moons ago after making the bold move from CA to MA. It wasn't half the institution it is now. Then again, neither was the tuition! Sure, the faculty was mix of frustrated, underpaid musicians along with true professors who possessed those all-too-elusive gifts of conveying tribal knowledge and inspiring progress. And just like any other community, it's all about cultivating a productive network. Based on your prior posts -- your thirst for knowledge & development, and especially your positive mental attitude & determination -- I have to believe you will absolutely thrive there.
