| I was suprised and deeply saddened to discover out that the Performing Arts Department never looked at my portfolio. I have been taking classes with people that know little or nothing about performing arts other than Glee and Lady Gaga.|
Voice for Performance is the worst class there. It's really just a yoga (Yes, really!). The teacher knows nothing about the subject and just gave out reading assignments copied and pasted from the internet and had us write/reflect about them as well as write reviews on school plays. We never worked on any dialects or voice styles, we just layed on the floor, touched ourselves, and moaned for 8 weeks. 4 years of repertory theater and I was reduced to having to taking a $10,000 yoga class!
The productions are rather cheap looking, despite SCADs massive profit margin, the talent (or lack of) on display is so amature and phony that it is depressing.
My other classes were all academics which were stunningly easy and seemed more like middle school level.
Most of the students in Performing arts, particularly the females, are some of the most close minded, snotty, arrogant, people I've ever met. Nothing against gays, but most of the ones in theater at SCAD act like little girls that dream about being stars. I know many gay "men", but all the SCAD "twinkies" really bring down the talent level.
I consider myself bright, but sometimes naive. I have been very foolish to attend this college and have since left to attend an actual conservatory in Pennsylvania. It took me a couple of tries, because they ACTUALLY watched my auditions.BTW: I found out they never viewed my audition when I saw the envelope in my admissions folder unopened. SCAD is a very dishonest and evil place.

| Savannah College of Art and Design is the biggest waste of money, time, and energy. After the school gets your money, they do not care what happens to you. You only learn the first three weeks of class because that is period when students are more likely to drop a class. |
The film department in particular is exceptionally pointless. You are reminded every day that the classes are useless and do not matter when looking for jobs. The professors care nothing about the students. They are more concerned with their own careers and would rather not waste the time trying to actually teach. If you are thinking about attending SCAD, just take all the money you would spend on tuition and learn your trade yourself. That is essentially what you do at the college anyway.

| Here's a couple of questions for those of you considering going to this "non-profit" art college.|
Q: How does one fail a class if they have turned in all homework, passed all tests, and only been absent once?
A: Voicing concerns about how the classes tend to differ greatly from the course descriptions to the department head.
Q: How does someone who repeatedly earned high marks on all projects and praise for class participation earn a C on a course needed for Graduation?
A: SCAD's policy is to hand out C's to keep people with plenty of financial aid (GI Bill in my case) in their system for as long as possible. You must have B's in all major work. There are schmucks at SCAD still trying to graduate after 5,6,7... years! You will these people working food and retail jobs all over Savannah.
Do no go to this school, and do not fall for their hype and recruitment, it is nothing more than wholly fake, phony propaganda. Beneath the shiny veneer of their sales pitch, you will find a slick, sleazy, and dishonest operation intenitonally designed to suck you dry of your money.
SCAD cares only about you in one regard; Your ability to pay and keep on paying.
If you decide to transfer in (as I did), watch out! They will suddenly re-evaluate your credits after a the drop-add period and even change the track of the program you enrolled in in attempt to trap students in their system.I truly hate SCAD, and you should too.
