Contemporary Improvisation is a very unique program at NEC combining composition, improvisation, and musicological approaches.
College Sophomore 2013-06-30T22:48:14Z
It's a music school, they need more practice rooms
College Senior 2012-10-18T23:32:51Z
The computers work well, and they are easy to use. Also, the computer lab is almost always open.

There are so many restaurants very close to the school, and they are all pretty good. Personally, I don't like panera and cappy's, but the rest are good. Also, there are quite a variety of cuisines such as Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Ethiopian, and gourmet sandwich and salad shops. One is certainly never hungry here
College Senior 2012-10-18T23:24:25Z
well it is difficult to get in but that is the point. Only those with a high level of competency are accepted

New England Conservatory is one of a kind! I don't really know where to begin. Everyone here is really friendly and kind. The playing level among the musicians is extremely high. It is an inspiring place to be if one wants to focus on becoming the most well rounded musician they can be
College Senior 2012-10-18T23:16:30Z
well... it is a conservatory. High powered academics are not what this school is about. It isn't difficult to get good grades, and the classes are not too difficult. The music instructors, however, are truly phenomenal.
College Senior 2012-10-18T23:12:43Z
It is cold but I don't really notice it. The buildings are very close together, and therefore, I don't have to spend much time walking in the cold.
College Senior 2012-10-18T23:09:23Z
there are not very many places to relax around campus. It is difficult to find a place where one can talk on the phone and not be overheard. The buildings themselves are very old, and they aren't repaired very often.

Not Too Bad – There are lots of places to eat in Boston. The restaurants directly around campus are somewhat sparse, but the ones that are around are generally acceptable.

Guys & Girls:
Not Too Bad – The guys are pretty girly; a lot of gay guys, and geeky guys. The girls are a good mix of both.
Recent Alumnus 2012-06-16T15:00:25Z
Pretty Good – There's lots of places in Boston to eat, however specifically around campus, not as many as I'd like. Some cheaper options would be appreciated.
College Sophomore 2012-05-11T00:35:36Z
Great University City – Filled with young people, exciting, full of energy!
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:13:34Z
Boston is a very walkable city, so students go to places by foot mostly. The T is very convenient, but sometimes not as efficient as expected.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:12:31Z
No Parking available for students. Most students don't own any vehicle.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:11:27Z
Guys & Girls:
Not Very Attractive Student Body – NEC does not have very attractive student body. Most of the students here are musical nerds, and don't have time to care about how they look.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:10:11Z
Severe Winter – Winter weather is very severe. Otherwise, Boston has pretty nice weather, but sometimes it's also quite changeable.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:09:20Z
Great Restaurants Around Boston – Boston has some of the best restaurants in the country. Especially in Little Italy.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:08:23Z
Great Music Program, Liberal Arts Aren't as Good – NEC has a great music program, but the Liberal Arts Department offers many classes that aren't particularly helpful and demanding.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:06:19Z
Very Dedicated Musicians – NEC has some of the most dedicated musicians in the country. People work very hard, and spend hours of their day practicing at school.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:04:55Z
Good Experience for Freshmen – The dorms at NEC are mostly for first year students. Because of the limited space in the dorms, most returning students choose to move off-campus. The Residence Hall at NEC is a great place to form a community, and has a great location. No alcoholic beverages are allowed in the Residence Hall.
College Senior 2011-04-20T00:02:05Z
Boston Is Simply Amazing – Boston is a great city. Many things to do, and the atmosphere of the city is very charming. Tons of colleges nearby, so the population of the city is generally young, therefore there's a lot of energy in the city. A very decent sized city, and very walkable. Public transportation is good, but sometimes not as efficient as expected. Nightlife is great in Boston. Many attractive people, a great city to people watch. Boston Common is a great place to hang out, and enjoy the sun.
The winter weather is pretty severe, and the snow and the wind are some of the cons of Boston.
College Senior 2011-04-19T23:58:23Z
The school provides a variety of financial aid and scholarships, both merit and need-based, and for both American and international students.
College Senior 2011-04-19T23:56:35Z
