    SCAD is expensive, but they have a pretty good scholarship fund for students with demonstrated need, lots of opportunity for student employment on campus, and an incredibly high job placement rate after graduation (I think its around 96%). SCAD prepares you for your creative career very well.

    This is a very expensive school, but you get access to a lot of great equipment and resources, and get things like Microsoft office and adobe stuff for free while you're a student.

    This school is expensive! But it's expensive for a reason. You may not see it at first but the school pays for many services that are beneficial to you. Counseling, many Mac and PC labs, the many many different people they invite to teach class for a day, model, give lectures. The opportunities in this school are vast so I would say you get the bang for your buck.

    The bang for your buck is definitely apparent at SCAD they have a lot of prestige and our Alumni were able to go out and do amazing things and have awesome careers. At any given time officials from companies like Google, Adobe, Apple, and more will stop by to do a meet and greet or give a lecture. The Connections that people make here are very important and fulfilling.
