So I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. I was originally going to go into pharmacy, but I think this is too boring and I just don't want to do it. I half assed all the interviews and didn't care if I got in or not. I only did it because my parents were telling me to (and because of the money). What I've always wanted to do involved art/drawing/painting. Now I've decided the best thing to do would be to do what I actually like (yes it took me this long to realize it) and I'm thinking about going back to school in order to get a career with animation. I'll have one year off to just sort of practice, build portfolio, and take some community college classes and stuff.
So I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction or suggest what are the best schools to go to for that career. Anything else I have to do to stand out and get better in that field?
Thanks I appreciate it
