I attended SCAD and received an MFA inQuite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I attended SCAD and received an MFA in graphic design. My degree provided me with the means to change careers successfully. It seems there are a broad range of experiences described by students. Some of overtly critical ones seem ridiculous and are filled with misinformation. Some of the A+ A+ A+ A+ ones seem to ignore some relevant issues. The bottom line is that SCAD has a large student, faculty, and staff population. To that end there is a very mixed bag of talent and achievement. If you decide to go to SCAD, be proactive. Seek the best faculty, work hard, and do not whine like 4-year olds if the work is stressful. No one is here to hold your hand.

People who say SCAD is terrible didnt giveBrightArchitecture
People who say SCAD is terrible didnt give it a chance. . . freshman year sucks! Foundations isnt what you went to scad for. . . intro classes isnt what you went to scad for. I struggled so much my first year and a half at scad, but once I got into my studio classes I remembered why I came to SCAD. I finished all 6, 5 hour interior design studios. They were hard, VERY hard, I didnt have a social life outside of my studio. But my final quarter at SCAD I didnt have any ID studios left and I really missed them. The girls that were in the program are probably the most amazing girls I have ever met. I honestly dont think Ive ever met nicer more genuine people before. Everyone at SCAD is so talented regardless if they are lazy or not. I dont consider myself an artist, I cant draw, but I can design like no other! SCAD is amazing and some of the professors go way beyond to help you succeed. Anyone that says otherwise is lazy and not taking advantage of their resources. I do admit that SCAD is all about images and will tell you anything to come to the school, and they dont use all the money we pay to come here they way it should be used, but at the same time were a top art school for a reason. And we made it to the top in just 30 years that its been around thats saying a lot. Paula Wallece sucks beyond belief but ill admit the school the co created is amazing and Im so sad its over.
