I am a 38 year old, single motherSuper BrilliantArt & Design Department
I am a 38 year old, single mother and what is considered a non-traditional student. I gave up a very lucrative career to go back to school and after carrying a 4.0 at another college I came here thinking that I was goign to get this great education. I could go on about the lack of parking and how dangerous this place can be if you have no "city-sense" but what is important is how aweful the school really is. The professors if they can be called that are some of the MOST arrogant people I have ever dealt with in my life. The school is a financial rip off also. I am being told that I need to pay the school back $6800.00 because I had to drop classes that I should not have taken in the first place. If I had had an academic advisor I would have known this but 3 weeks into the course realizing that I was not going to pass and had no other resources I was forced to drop. Now the school is saying that in three weeks I received $6800.00 worth of an education!? Thi is not the first time that this has happened to me here. Not to mention the insults I have received from the instructors here about my age! My age should not be a factor! Am I not paying for my education just like everyone else? I haveheard this age thing from other older students too! This is by far the worst school in so many ways, I could go on and on. These are just a few of my gripes.

Question
It is extremely difficult to get larger scholarshipsAverageArt & Design Department
It is extremely difficult to get larger scholarships than awarded in your first year. Most of the people working for scad, excluding professors, are border-line incompetent and direct you back and forth across campus to complete paperwork etc. At least 5 art history classes are required to graduate, leaving most feeling that they have not recieved enough elective classes in their major. Portfolios are not always required to get in so the student body is growing to fast for scad to accomodate them properly and are placing students 3 deep in dorm rooms that should only have 2 max. (although there are bathrooms in each dorm room which is awesome)
