Pro: Well Maintained Campus

Con: Campus is spread out all over Savannah

Pro: SCAD is fairly easy to get into

Con: SCAD Lets in too many spoiled brats

Pro: There are a few talented hard working creative people

Con: Far too many slackers bring down the reputation

Pro: SCAD has an attendance policy. (5 and Fail)

CON: SCAD has numerous "chosen" ones allowed to skip numerous classes, do poorly on tests and exams, and still receive A's and B's.(FYi: A class action lawsuit is pending over unfair grading.)

Pro: Large student body for an Art School

Con: Most students (especially the ones in performing arts) are arrogant, unfriendly, rude, and selfish.

SCAD is like going back to high school, only there are less rules and the work is easier. Do not expect much of challenge, unless you are an architecture student. SCAD pumps out 1000's of useless art/film/drama wannabes every year. Between them and the Art Institutes of America, the labor market is flooded with ignorant immature people thinking they are entitled to job in an art related field.

I am lucky, there's a job waiting for me when upon graduation. Finishing a degree in performing arts was a condition for higher levels of employment. Fortunately I transferred in and only had to attend here for a year and half.

It's truly appalling how poor the levels of instruction in MPRA are. It's as though the professors know that that have mediocre talent to work with and therefore teach accordingly. Sure there are a few that rise to the top, but the sad reality is that most of them only got to the top b/c they were one the chosen ones. These chosen ones have talents alright, it may be performing, but it's certainly not the arts.

My advice to anyone wanting to study Fashion/Film/TV/Performing Arts/Dramatic Writing at SCAD is to ask yourself these questions:

1. Do I appreciate talent and hard word?

2. Have I ever made money with my art/talent?

3. Is my work better than that of a typical SCAD graduate?

4. Is there a cheaper school that can do the same thing?

5. Will I need to take loans to attend SCAD?

6. Could I get work without a degree?

If you answered "Yes" to at least 4 of these questions then you should probably go to another school or better yet, get to work right away. Seek out private mentors and internships. Nothing sparks creatively and higher levels of skills more than actually doing the work.

responseHi, I am a sophomore in High School and interested in SCAD.

It sounds like a great school regardless of the negative reviews about the STUDENT BODY instead of the actual SCHOOL (which would be much more useful).

I don't quite understand why we need to know about the other students when (I'm assuming) most of the people interested in SCAD are worried more about the academics then the students there. After all, if the other students are snotty brats, it's their problem… not ours.

I would really appreciate a review about the SCHOOL rather then the people there.
