But the pages said that you can earn some money if you work in the campus.
If i suppose that i will earn something there by myself in the campus, i would need another "aid" for pay.
The elements that are under study now:
*Goverment aids for 3 years in the army
*University aids for international students
*Kind of "job" in weekend or something like that
*Find a job of telecom engineering there, and study simultaneously the actor career.

But ill think more possibilities.
I have to study the situation very carefully.

I think you need to be a US Citizen before you can join the army (have to be a conditional resident for at least 2 years fist before you can even apply for Citizenship). What kind of Visa do you have for the entering the US? Is it just a student visa?

It may also be more available and perhaps more affordable. I also believe they have scholarships, and as Spain is an EU member, Spanish residents, would have an easier time to qualify than attempting the leaps to get a student visa in the States.
Im really seduced by the idea of join this school.
But where is the prize?I cant see it anywhere...

To cold_eh_ND

I have the student visa.

I believe "the prize" as you call it may only be available on an application!

Whatever you decide, enjoy and as they say, "break a leg" (for success) in theatre parlance.

I don't think you need to be a citizen to enlist in the US military. If you have previous experience in special forces that may be a plus, though I doubt any bases are near acting schools.

LA would be closer in climate to what you may be use to. There are quite a bit more movies being filmed in NYC the last few years. Seems like one is in the hopper nearly all the time. Look at this site www.nyc.gov/film There are schools in Manhattan (NYC) that give acting classes for short periods of time, maybe a month to several months, without college credit.

There are a lot of posibilities.
Like i said before, i have no problems with climate,people,studies or others factors...
The only problem is that i cant pay "millionaire" schools.Like 40000 $ per year...
My family and i live very well here, but you know...one thing is live ok and have two cars,a flat and a house in the outskirts...and another thing is have the enough money to study in "elite" schools.
Thirstly, in this world have talent is not the 100% you need.You also need money.
So, what im looking for is good academy where i could have opportunity of learn and study without waste thousands and thousands of dollars in only ONE year...
Im looking now for RADA.But after i finished my studies, ill pretend to travel to california or something and go castings... you know, TRY.
If the thing goes wrong, ill return to my old job, in the telecommunications area.
But, in my country it is said that God protect the crazy men.
Hope so! XD

Yes, if the States is where you'd like to come you can check the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, the Studio, and others (NYC). All short-term but not inexpensive. the American Academy was once focused exclusively on technical skills; the Studio is known primarily for its special "method" technique.

I'd vote for RADA--it is still #1 in my book!
