Question
Attending Columbus College of Art & Design hasBrightVideo/Media
Attending Columbus College of Art & Design has been an amazing experience, and watching my peers as well as myself grow over the years has been very motivating. It's important to stay focused on your work and find inspiration constantly. Some students at this school will graduate but not even feel confident in the work they're making. Some classes and instructors may lack helpful elements, such as critical critiques, but try to meet and research the professors to know their limitations when you feel this way. On the plus side, I feel like there's a great variety in instructors expertise for each department. Regardless, the student to faculty ratio is a great help in learning and developing new skills.

Question
I received a scholarship to this school andBrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
I received a scholarship to this school and left after half of a year. First of all, it is in a terrible location and a friend of ours got beat up on his way to get chinese food.

I'd write a long review, but look. its like track team. they give out a lot of awards knowing half will drop out.

Waste of money. ruins everything about art. The teachers only show off their own art. Honestly, it isn't even good. you have to watch people brag about their art or write essays, which i did. Best grades I got. Run for it. Do not go. everyone got a 80,000 scholarship but guess what? thats two years. The average income after is 30,000. you'd make more without even going to college.Biggest scam. At least they LOOK at your portfolios....places like SCAD don't. Its sad, they make people feel talented. its sick almost.
