    It costs $160k for 4 years and most of the people I know graduated and couldn't find work.

    You're paying about sixty grand a year when you don't even need a degree to get work. Nothing you learn here cannot be learned for a cheaper price or for free.

    I wish it was cheaper, but if you look at all the new facilities and electronics, it makes sense. The teachers are fresh out of the industry or still in it. The price of dorming is certainly overpriced for what you're getting, though.

    Financial aid is predatory. You have to keep track of a lot of things so you don't get taken advantage of. Unless you get hefty scholarships, not worth it. Even the scholarships aren't great, by comparison to other similarly-priced schools. The big trustee scholarship for being the BEST in your entire major is $3K. That's the price of a meal plan. Or maybe dorm housing. For a semester. So unless you have very generous grandparents (or sugar daddies/mommas) you'll be swimming in student debt for the next decade.

    Too expensive for what it offers. You definitely get bang for the buck if you're going into an Animation major--the only major that I would offer for prospective students. Otherwise, it's much too expensive.
