Hello. I've been lurking here for a while trying to soak in all the valuable information you guys have been posting. I'm still curious as to where I should go to school.. and I'm hoping some of you guys could help me with some advice.
I am currently taking classes at a community college in Houston,TX... and just this past semester, I finally found the right path for me - graphic design. I was thinking that I should just get my associates and look for jobs from there.. but after doing more research online and asking questions.... I'm now thinking that it would be best for me to go to a 4 year school and get a BFA. I just don't think I'm getting all the information I need to be a successful graphic designer with just an aas. So....
How hard is it to transfer into an art and design school from a community college? What do schools do you rank high in the Graphic Design area? which rank low? Why? If you transferred, was it hard to transfer your credits? What are your opinions on RISD? Tyler school of art?
It's too late for me now to apply for this fall, I know. So I plan on researching schools and applying for fall of 2006 - in the mean time I'm still planning on taking a few classes at my community college. Do you think it would be wise to get an associates degree before I transfer? Does it matter? Is it hard to transfer into a school for the spring semester?
lol. Sorry, this post is all over the place.... I'll stop with the questions for now.. lol.. I would very much appreciate any feedback. thank you in advance!
