Riley Finn
Don't mind me, just plotting my future.

Riley entered the Reference Center with a sigh. He had started this term thinking it would be second to last term here at RMI but now just a week into it he realized there was no point in staying past this term. Riley, knew what he wanted to do with his life, he wanted to be on Broadway. This was going to be the last term that Riley could be in a play, next term was going to be a talent show and that didn’t really prepare him for Broadway.

His classes weren’t preparing him his career. Cultural Studies, didn’t matter in New York, he knew all the cleaning and cooking spells from Spellwork, Potions was just filler for him, as was Herbology since he wasn’t allowed to take just two classes. So the sixteen year old came to the Reference Center for quiet.

He had convinced his mom via a phone call made out on Pearl Street to let him graduate early like Jonas. Unlike Jonas it had taken a lot more to convince her and she finally relented when he agreed to attend a school in New York. Rose had sent him a ton of information on colleges in NYC and demanded Riley apply to at least two of them.

So spread out before him was the information packets on Juilliard, New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, The American Musical and Dramatic Academy, Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, and Columbia University School of the Arts. All of the names sounded so daunting that Riley didn’t know where to start. The thing that Rose hadn’t seen when she glanced through some of the packets that some schools were both Muggle and Wizard schools. Those were the ones Riley had decided to focus on.

The Muggle schools, Juillard, and New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts were set aside leaving Riley with, AMDA, Tisch School of the Arts, and Columbia's School of the Arts. All three were Wizarding schools and that made Riley fairly happy. It was nice to know that to pursue his chosen career he could still be part of the wizarding world.

AMDA was soon out thanks to the Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts in Musical Theater being only in LA. Riley was not going to LA, but to NYC! So he put that on top of the Juillard and NYCDA packets. He smiled down at the last two NYU’s TSoTA, and Columbia’s SotA were left standing. “Well I guess those are the ones I’m applying to.” He mumbled as he rubbed his cheek.

He was absorbed in reading about the programs didn’t really hear what the person in front of him had just asked. The sixth year glance up and said. “Sorry, I was reading what did you say?”
