So I've got a friend who goes to the Art Academy and one at the Art Institutes...I'm leaning towards the latter because they're helping me out big time financially (plus a bunch of my credits transferred), but I keep hearing bad things about it. That people will not take you seriously with a degree from there, that the advisers and faculty and coursework aren't all that great, and that even though it's accredited it's a 'fake' one???
I'm a bit confused so I was wondering if anyone here has any insight on the matter? I've applied and visited the one in Orange County, and from my experience it's been the total opposite of what I've heard. I'm hoping it's a case of if I put a 150% into the work it won't matter since it seems like the majority of schools have the same curriculum, and it's just the effort you put into it that matters.
