School of the Art Institute of Chicago - Comments and Student Experiences|
Also, students here are hard to understand and be friends with!!
there is no social life in chicago because
everything closes at 8pm! and classes end at 6pm! so basically you have no social life at all...SO if you want to have a social life, and be challenged academically and actually DO art instead of listening to 6 hour lectures and 1 hour of work then i suggest you go to another school...Art Center is recommendable, or Calarts..UCLA, Yale, RISD, MICA, Parsons, Pratt, SVA, CCA, Otis, SCAD..NO MASSART...massart is trash too!! (they talk shit about other schools to prosper students)
A lot of professors I had...had favourites...it was disgusting it was like being in highschool again. I had a "professor" who looked like a home economics teacher who was teaching design....really? She looked and taught like she worked part time at JoAnn Fabrics or Hobby Lobby....she also taught at another school down the street so there was no loyalty to SAIC....it was a paycheck to her. Also one of my professors got deported mid year....one minute he was there and the next gone....
I am making great money right now but my education at SAIC has certainly had nothing to do with it...I work in a corp. job in upper management-that I do not use my BFA for at all.
If I could go back I would have never wasted my money to go here....I think it is funny because the alumni association always sends me....please donate....blah...blah...when I think of my friends that I still keep in touch with and they are hardly making ends meet I think asking alumni for money when you have not prepared them for real life is ridiculous. Go to a better rated school
