**Interviews are held in the same room where the students auditioned.  Parents are allowed to attend the interviews with the students.  Audition assistants will post names requested by college representatives on the door of the audition rooms for each art form late in the afternoon.  Dance will be posted near the studio.  It will be the student’s responsibility to check the list and return to the room for the interview.  Please note:  Not all schools post call-back interviews.  Some college representatives have travel plans and do not stay for call-back interviews.  If your name is not posted, it does not mean the colleges were not interested. If you are unable to stay for callbacks, GSA will inform you of any callbacks by email. You may also follow-up using the audition cards you receive at the end of the auditions.


Parent  Waiting Area

The designated parent waiting area is the Auditorium at Manual (the same space as Class 101 workshops).  Parents and students are more than welcome to leave campus in between activities.  See the registration desk for a list of nearby restaurants.
