    You do get a lot of bang for your buck here at SCAD because each class is extremely rigorous as it is a shorter period of time than other colleges because we are on the quarter system. Each of my professors have a lot of experience in their field and most have worked in the specific field they are teaching so you get extra pointers and help with resumes and portfolios as the professors have useful tips and experience.

    Unknown. I will know if I get a job quickly after graduating next year. Certainly, SCAD has a great reputation and they claim to have a high placement rate.

    As long as the craftsmanship of one's work is up to par, then SCAD is worth the money. However, their are those within the SCAD system that can be seen as cheated out of their grade as some may have an eye towards their craft that is boundless that the professor may not see. Aside from this over looked flaw, it is truly worth money as long as the time and work is placed in one's work daily.

    It's very expensive--maybe too expensive, but when you see the facilities, you know that you're money was wisely spent. Also, the education is to die for. The only thing that I wish the administration had used some of their discretion on would be the napping pods. I don't know of a single person who ever used them, and they must have cost a fortune.
