She cares more about Creativity/ Innovation than the average student.
Date: Mar 18 2007
Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time)
I've been at SFAI for the better part of two semesters, and i could not be more displeased with my experience. SFAI's only concern is pulling themselves out of debt, and therefore they will take anyone who will cough up tuition (tuition-high quality of education-very, very low.) The end result is a student body whose intelligence level is well below average, and whose truly creative output is nearly non existent. If one does not wish simply to sit around, smoke pot, drink, lick faculty ass, and socialize with either the hyper art theory-obsessed self-absorbed condescending to-be art critics, or the Neanderthal-like skateboard riding urchins who comprise the other half of the student body, stay well away and get a decent education elsewhere. I'm transferring next year, and I've gotten into both CalArts and CCA, so this isn't the whining of a bitter untalented artist, merely the complaining of someone who loves art and wants to get the best education he can. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.
