SCAD doesn't prepare you for outside in the real world, especially not computer majors. It's full of hope and a "you can do it!" attitude until maybe 5 minutes after all your parents drive off during orientation. Yea, the idea of being an actress or a fashion designer SOUNDS cool, but after 4 years of pretending youre the best thing since sliced bread and having teachers all tell you that and never really critique you…you'll get a rude awakening.

Plus, the school is full of far too much drama. In my 4 years there I knew one student who the school lied and gave 2 quarters worth of "A" credits for classes they never took (even with people I knew in the class who saw his "attendance" continually checked as present. But its ok, they made the school look good in the real world!) I saw teachers hired with no experience in their subjects and degrees. The higher up's are money grubbers. I had many friends robbed or assaulted and it never saw the light of day…

Trust me, if you REALLY think an art degree is the way for you, there are much better schools. Go to RSDI or Ringling or a community college- anything else. It'll be cheaper and you'll learn more.
