She cares more about Creativity/Innovation than the average student.
Major: Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc (This Major's Salary over time)
Pros:
-There are some very talented students here.
-The city is beautiful and inspiring in so many ways.
-I had one incredible professor.
-I met two of my very close friends here.
-Food was pretty decent.

Cons:
-Cost. JEEZ THIS PLACE IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY. Unless you have considerable scholarship, I see no need in spending this much at this particular school. The classes and facilities were not worth the cost.
-Drugs. I'm going to be honest. If you have ever had a drug problem, this is not the place for you to go. Very wealthy kids and drugs are abound here.
-Friends. On a similar note, a lot of the people you meet here will not be your friends. There is a profound emptiness in the people who go here. You will not be cared for. You might party with them, but the second your in deep it's sayonara.
-Academics. In the one year I attended, granted, it was foundations classes, I felt no challenge what so ever. I felt as though these were high school classes, and the students could get away with projects done a night before it's due.
-Motivation. The few talented students here are immensely talented, but there is not enough competition here to keep you thoroughly engaged whatsoever.
-Clubs. Basically non-existent. As opposed to other universities, where it's a great way to make friends, here it's just something to show off on tours.


Personally, when I left and ended up transferring to a state university (which I dreaded doing during my application process my senior year) I saw my art actually improve. I was a film major at SCAD, and it was only when I left SCAD that I actually got the tools to make my own short films that I could be proud of. I'm a lot healthier here and my grades seem well earned. I feel pride in myself as a student and an artist, and that's something I didn't have at SCAD.

Before you attend SCAD, please keep the cost in mind. The classes and facilities do not reflect the cost, and I actually see them as being sub-par to the public university facilities and classes. This cost attracts a certain mindset of people that can be incredibly hard to relate to if you're not one of them. This place is not at all what it looks like in the tours. Please ask students there how they feel about it. Read reviews. Consider other options HARD. Remember, private schools can more easily get away with doing sneaky things with your money.
