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
