    Apply for any program but Experimental Animation, it has turned into a Club for rich posers who can't get into Character Animation and draw badly and bully anyone who is not rich or part of their pseudo pc club. I saw Master Students and a few new students gang up on and bully other students. They locked me out of rooms and buildings and stole my puppets and drawings. There are many cheaters there. One person actually traced scenes from Ponyo as their assignment. Trust me, Any Program but Experimental. I regret not applying for a different program! Watch out for the "Careerists" and Sociopaths who smile before they try to push you down the stairs because you are more talented. No joke. There are also amazing people and teachers, just look beyond outward appearances not everyone is how they appear. Aside from Experimental there is a beautiful acceptance and unity of people of all religions, races, and genders and passion to learn! read full review
