this school is whatever nothing special. i went for a semester and im leaving and going to fidm in la. the people in san francisco and aau are very different and live a completely different life style than me. i made one friend. the people in my classes werent talkative, friendly, and everyone was in their own little world. im from la and im used to going out at night and hitting up a bar or a club no one was ever down tto have a goood time. alot of people were just WEIRD. no one listened to weezy f baby, deadmau5, wolfgang gartner, birdman, wale, kid cudi, RUSKO, jack beats etc. they all listen to 90's alternative music. but besides the people classes were fine. they make u go around the city basically and go on wild goose chases for fabrics and certain types of architectual designs, so u spend the whole day looking for shit and waste time. that was so annoying. they dont tell u where to go. PS NVER TAKE MODEL MAKING WITH DAVE. he is so rude, toughest grader, not helpful, basically just a pain in the ass teacher/babysitter for 6 hours everyweek. also make sure u save your money because u will spend at least $200 on foam board alone. you have to pay for so much art stuff the school doesnt provide you with one thing. i spent at least $1,000 on art materials for hw and projects. that is my opinion of the school. also its hard to meet people because there r so many buildings round the city its so stupid becuase aau is getting sued for millions becuase they are buying and renting historic buildings that used to be hotels and like other shit and turingin them into buildings and dorms in residential areas.
commentIt sucks you and dave didn't get along, but he is an awesome instructor. You seem like you might be bitter because things didn't go your way. Yes, this school has countless flaws, but the education and courses are their greatest strengths. You can't blame them for not succeeding because if there's one thing the school does right, it's preparing you for the real world.
