SCAD or Ringling? What does CA think?
I have done allot of research in both colleges, more with scad though. However i'm still not completely sure where i want to go. I'm more interested in Ringing but im not sure if im good enough to get a decent scholarship to it. What do you think? Has anyone here attended one of the schools or at least been on the campus on a tour? what did you think? Plus what do you think of these schools?
-Closer to home
-Growing - rapidly
-Allot of positive feedback from past students
-Very easy to contact a rep
-Good amount of companies visit school (Like Blizzard)
-You can switch from campus to campus easily. (ex: go from SCAD savannah to SCAD atlanta or when Hong Kong opens you can go there --as long as you have classes set up at the school.)
-SCAD claims to have one of the best game art and design classes in the country.
-Website very easy to navigate.
-Somewhat small amount of negatives reviews many talking about how the teachers there are jerks.
-SCAD/Atlanta Campuses are supposedly in/near bad neighborhoods .
-Doesn't show that SCAD has won very many awards.
-School has received numerous awards.
-Many alumni move on to dream jobs.
-Has many "connections" with the professional world.
-Companies visit Ringling (Blizzard, activision, ect.)
-It said on the site that students get macbooks for free(?)
-Also sounded like this school was more focused on art then academics but im not sure how far that goes.
- Great amounts of positive feedback
- Most of the student artwork is great
-Easy to navigate website
-Difficult to contact a rep
-I believe its more expensive to attend then scad

Yeah what Troubadour said, you're definitely not going to minor in illustration (or probably anything actually) if you get into Ringling's game art or computer animation program. Both of those programs have ridiculous workloads.

Ya it depends on what you study since I heard ringling is more into animation then anything else. But I went to scad and really enjoyed it. But some of the cons are correct like some area's of campus are in bad neighbor hoods but not all. Since scad as many buildings around Savannah so you not have to worry about it. But if you do just use common sense and others will tell you to be careful and what to watch for. Also I did see some good and some bad teachers at scad but that can be said for any school.

SCAD offers 3-10k for Academic Merit, and 3-10k for Artistic Merit. If you are in the upper echelon for both of these, you can be considered for additional scholarships, the ones named after Board of Trustee members and the like.
