Stay away from this school…You will regret it…

It is not accredited and even if it was somewhat accredited, no one will hire you in the industry…I had a friend that graduated 2 years ago and to this day, still cannot find a job in the advertising industry because most companies said that his portfolio was not impressive, and he graduated #2 in his class…

No one is impressed by this Diploma farm…They give you a worthless diploma and say you have a BFA that only the school will acknowledge…The staff does not give a shit about you…I talked to a teacher, lets just say his initals are M.R. (I don't want to get him in trouble, he's cool) He told me to just take my money and my talents elsewhere…THis is coming from a teacher at the school…The only reason he's working there is to make money and once he sells one of his scripts, he's quitting and moving to Hollywood…

Stay away from this worthless school…I'm not saying this out of spite…I would love to graduate and get a BFA in Motion pictures and TV…but not from this school…

I tried to keep an open mind about this school halfway through the semester, but as soon as I started seeing my classmates dropping out every week of class, I couldnt do it any longer and realized that I was wasting my time and money here…

Do the right thing…go to a Community College and transfer to a state or private college…

This school just plain sucks…Especially the acting department…

responseThe school IS accredited, sorry to dissapoint you. No one should have problems hiring a second-in-class because honestly, how many design schools / colleges with design majors are there? If they ONLY took #1 they would be getting (at max) about 200 kids a year…I'm sure they need more.

And about your teacher MR? Maybe he has issues with the school, you know, bad memories with administration or something. I work at a car dealership and I tell everyone not to buy the cars there just because I hate the type of car. It's a good car, don't get me wrong, but I hate it. Ugly as anything. So personal vendettas are sure to be present.

Last comment, people were dropping out all the time? You ranked yourself super brilliant…think about it for a second. The school is a 100% acceptance rate so EVERYEONE has a chance at art, even if they don't have natural talent. People sign up, realize it's A LOT of work and drop out. Or REALLY don't have an ounce of talent. Or decide they really don't like to draw. Etc. Etc. A lot of reasons. (: (:
