Also they'll tell you there are more scholarships once you're in. don't ever count on that. I've been there 2 years, never seen a single soul get more funds than what they offered in the first place.
Secondly, they call themselves "the university of creative careers" while the career adviser may never even see you during your whole time of study (true story- happened to a couple of people) and will never answer your emails and inquiries ( happened to myself, all the time). In some departments even the career adviser herself is a recent graduate student. It doesn't matter if the student/adviser has a lot of connections and is a successful one in her field herself, but unfortunately this is not the case here.
In one sentence, the day you graduate, they kick you out of school, and you are ALL BY YOUR OWN. of course they always want to hear about your success stories to brag about, you know.
And last but not least, Savannah is beautiful and all, but what I was looking for as an student/ job seeker was knowing people in the filed, and making connections. They have a career fair every year, but it's mostly about small local businesses, so if you'r in film/digital media/fashion/writing/sequential arts, it's gonna be a time waster.All and all, if I had the knowledge I have today, I would never waste my time and money in SCAD, I'd go to a big city, meet real people, and attend a school that really cares about students, and not wants to rip them off, even on the commencement day by trying to sell them $200 mandatory gowns.
