    but when I was at NYU, the joke (which was funny because it was true) was that more successful people in Hollywood had dropped out of Tisch than graduated from there.

    Since then, I think it's gotten a better rep/churned out more successful actors/actresses/directors.

      I've often wondered what the "success rate" is for the students you see in the crowd?

      I remember that during one of the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) strikes there was a big article about how only the upper echelon of actors & actresses make a "comfortable" living, and the vast majority of SAG members really need the sort of negotiated benefits that are fought over during the strikes.

      And remember that out of the entire pool of struggling actors, only a small amount are SAG members to begin with.
