Describes the faculty as:
Film school students are really cliquey but definitely passionate. Personally, I've found it difficult to make lasting relationships with many people.It takes a very assertive person to make friends since the suites are extremely isolating and anti-social, you'll likely not have most classes with people you knowClasses are uninspiring. I'm a sophomore and 90% of my classes have consisted of professors at front lecturing 100+ students for 2 hours. Then midterm, final, and a few papers. All interaction done through TAs since they're the ones grading everything so forget about personal education.
Honestly, I would've transferred yesterday if the weather wasn't so nice and the film school didn't have the reputation as being one of the best in the country. I keep trying to tell myself that reputation isn't everything, but in reality I've met a lot of people who are impressed by the USC name, even though the education quality sucks.
|All that really matters is if your school ranked in the top 25 of the nation. If a school isn't in the top 25 of the nation, then it's an awful school with mostly awful people.|
