SCAD leaves a LOT to be desired.Quite BrightArt & Design Department
SCAD leaves a LOT to be desired. It is not a real art school; rather it is a business venture run and marketed (very cleverly and manipulatively) by a bunch of guys in 3 piece suits. No one is doing groundbreaking or significant work here; it is pure color by number. It was so much like my high school art classes that I got fed up and transfered to RISD, and it has made a world of difference!!! If you want to be an artist, go to RISD or the Art Institute of Chicago or Parsons-- SCAD is for the people whose work wasn't good enough to get into those places!

You must be VERY self motivated in orderQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
You must be VERY self motivated in order to succeed here. When dealing with the adminstration you must be persistant in order to get what you need. In dealing with the Bursar's office and any type of Financial Aid, keep all of your records, and record who you speak to at all times, it often seems as though the "right hand does not know what the left hand is doing".good luck
