    I have met with a number of experts at art schools during national portfolio day. Here is what I was told:

    1. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE COLLEGE WEB SITE. Did I emphasize this enough? Most...

    Jarklor, USC really isn't that strong in computer animation probably to your surprise. They are very 2d oriented. The same can be said for CalArts.

  8. MTM is MUCH less expensive than Sheridan

    First, I am not convinced that Sheridan is really better than Max the Mutt; however, they do have a stronger reputation right now

    Secondly, Max the Mutt is less than 50% of the cost of Sheridan,...

    Max was banned for too much advertising

    It is the policy of this forum that companies that do too much marketing of themselves in posts, will get banned after being warned. Although I don't agree with this policy, it is what it is.
