East coast or West coast?
The other day i was doing book research on a school project, i found something in a book about (cartoon) animation. the author said that if you go to school on the West coast (CA), the school professors are more experienced and in-touch with the field; if it's the East coast (NY) you would have more opportunities but the professors are less experienced (or even none).
So, i just wanna know what you guys all think.

In some cases this is true. However, Ringling is in Florida and its computer animation program has been rated number one in the nation, number 3 in the world two years in a row by 3D World Magazine.
Also, while the industry is mostly focused in the LA area, there are also studios scattered about the US. For instance, Blue Sky used to be in White Plains, New York, though I'm pretty sure they recently moved their studio to Connecticut. Texas is also a new hotspot for studios because it's cheap to live there; Reel FX is in Dallas. Finally, up past California on the West Coast, there are studios in both Oregon and Washington. Oregon has one of my favorites--Laika.

I think that's a ridiculously broad generalization.
