A Matter of Degree

Back in her Florida prep school days, Monica Raymund dreamed of studying acting at a top conservatory. As a senior, she applied to undergraduate schools around the country — a dozen in all — some of which had actor training programs, including Juilliard, Carnegie Mellon, and Boston University. But Raymund was also a "science geek," she says. "I was looking for a school where I could do science, as well as theatre if I chose to." A voice in her head, however, told her that a traditional college would allow her little time for acting, and when she was accepted to Juilliard in 2004, all other options — along with her petri dishes — were swept off the table. "This was clearly the universe's way of setting this opportunity up," she says. "And if I didn't capitalize on that, I think it would've been a pretty dumb move." Earlier this year, Raymund completed her Bfa degree at Juilliard. »
