View Full Version : Best College for Computer animation/modeling
10 October 2011, 01:37 PM
Ok, Im a senior in high school and I'm hopeing to go to college for a degree in computer animation. I've become fairly proficient in both blender and zbrush over the years, though I'm mostly self taught. I'm not the greatest traditional artist, but I've been working over the past four years to improve. I have a GPA of roughly 2.8-3.0, and I didnt do so hot on the ACT (I was given an 18.....though I intend to retake it). My initial plan for the past few years was to attend online classes (due to the fact that I live in Wisconsin and ALL the schools seem to be conviently quite far from here) through Full Sail and then work my way into a campus life, however I've reacently heard some pretty bad things about Full Sail (that it's a rip off for the education you recieve, that the school will just leave you working at mcdonalds..ect.). I'm also still on the fence and Im not really shure where to go, I've looked at Ringling, SCAD, Academy of Art University, Vancouver Film School, Gnome and a few others I cant remember right now. Please help! Im actually seriously worried that none of these schools will accept me, though I'm willing to work hard to become a good artist and this is really the only career I've ever wanted to do. Any other schools sujestions are welcome.
