I am a firm believer in the view that college is what YOU make of it. If you come into an environment where you are unprepared, afraid or closeminded than you are likely to fail.

The Academy of Art has its share of faults and shadiness, but overall it's a good school. I just finished my first year and while it sometimes seemed redundant, I had a very good time.

It was difficult, I noticed that a lot of people drop out after one semester and I can't blame them. Most of the people who drop out think it's art school, how hard can it be? Or that their hands will be held from the get-go to the end. AAU is a very independent school. It's hard to make friends, it's hard to get good grades but if you try hard enough…and overall TRY you will suceed.

Of course this site attracts the whiners…I actually found out about this site from a whiner formerly known as my roomate…

Don't be discouraged by this site. Make your own decisions and good luck!
