I'm definitely interested in that program. I have a minor in music.
This is my main reason for leaning towards UM. I run a nonprofit record label (http://www.musicalmissionary.com
) and I would love to master all aspects of music business and law (and nonprofits). The business model for my label is trading artists a tax-exemption for their in-kind donation of music and then raising money for the mission of providing music education to underprivileged kids. Right now I deal with independent electronic music producers, but in the future I would love to get some major artists involved in the project. So I'd like to really understand the world of Big Entertainment inside and out. Plus, I am totally fascinated by intellectual property law, copyright in particular.
Unless I get into Fordham, which is a long shot for me, I'll be at UM next year.
