This school is a mixed bowl, and thereSuper Brilliant
This school is a mixed bowl, and there is potential for both success and utter failure here. I have had brilliant professors who are masters in their fields (and childhood idols of mine), and I have had professors with....Scad BFAs and no outside experience (caught in the quagmire of sloth, poor souls). If you are extremely pro-active, you can get your money's worth, but I would liken it to staying afloat in a leaking canoe. (the ocean representing the "real world"). A shoddy canoe is definitely better than treading water, but would my time be more productively spent building my own boat? Tough call....

>SCAD is highly underrated! It really is on the same level as Pratt, Cooper, RISD, CCA, i could keep going.

>Also, reading the other reviews of those schools, one can easily see the similarities in the "negative".

>No matter what school you go to there are going to be pros and cons. Yes some students can be bitchy and the parties not so abundant, but you know what, why are we even paying them attention, and our parents aren't paying $40,000 a year so we can party and dick around.

College is supposed to be rigorous. Although materials do add up.
>SCAD has a lot to offer, it is what you make of it.
>I like the fact that athletics are pretty prominent at a art/design school.>Last highlight: FACILITIES are INCREDIBLE!

I taught here and was treated well -Quite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I taught here and was treated well - I decided to teach at a better school.
Some advice:
- Ask VERY had questions about the department you are considering - the quality is VERY erratic.
- Look at the faculty - do they REALLY have industry experience? Is their Masters degree from SCAD?
- The admissions department is slick - be very careful.
- SCADs reputation is self-generated - most events are to enhance the SCAD brand - not students.
- Admission is open - if you get into better school - go - the better school is better for a reason - better student, faculty, standards.

- Savannah is dangerous and SCAD security has no ability to save you
