I just wanted this thread to note that there are alternatives

When Gnomon was 45K per year, I felt that it was a great deal for what they offered. They might still have great training,but at 33K per year(which is the cost for Gnomon), there are now some good alternatives such as SCAD, ACCD, Academy of Art,SVA, even Pratt and NYU's CADA program etc especially if you can get any scholarships. In addition, there are online programs such as animation mentor that are much less expensive too.

I say forget schools altogether. Learn on your own. It's cheaper, it's harder and in the end, it's way more satisfying! It only needs dedication and discipline.

Looking from here in Belgium where I paid 300$ a year for my studies in computer science, this price looks like a big joke. I can't understand how people would pay for that when they could learn everything by themselves for a tenth of the price.

A good portfolio would be a better thing than any studies to find a job.
