Major: Architecture (This Major's Salary over time)
This well marketed school has unique priorities, beginning with their army of recruiters that all seem to have a (unused) SCAD degree. There is such a disappointing disconnection between the disciplines for a school with such potential. If you like your tuition paying for pointless flat panel televisions scattered throughout their numerous building bragging about the school, a collection of over budgeted athletic teams that do not generate any money, an private art collection(that you may not even see) that can compete with anywhere in the US of A, and a 'president' that's annual salary allows her to order over a million items on any fast food dollar menu each year.

Personally, I have not had a positive experience, but I am not saying it is not possible, because with the amount of students enrolled the law of probably will come into play and the school will market that lucky individual well. My main gripes are: having a studio class with 25 students, no metal working tools in the architecture program, inexperience faculty (straight out of grad school, most likely graduating SCAD), rising price of tuition, extremely high acceptance rate (abundance of extremely low caliber students) , disorganized administration, etc.

SCAD is not completely corrupt because they do a lot for the community and there are a handful of excellent faculty and students, and they have a couple of outstanding exhibits and lectures each year, but unfortunately they have overdone themselves with letting the world know that already (so there is only disappointment to discover.)
