What is your top 3 Colleges for 3D Modeling

Hey guys I been working on some portfolio work in 3D modeling but feel that I need to go to a good school for this. I came from Westwood and wish I could take that time back but I can not. I would not recommend that college to any one for art. So I decided to get my feet wet again in college and am trying to research what is the best college to spend my money on to become a competitive CG artiest in Modeling mainly characters and hard surface modeling.

I am interested in your guys thoughts if you had to make a list of the top 3 college to get into to become a successful 3d artist not in animation what would they be? I like to work for the film industry when I get out as my target market.

Definitely not Ringling. Ringling is only good for animation, nothing else. Be sure you talk to these schools and look at their work.


Be sure you are talking to these schools and their students. I'm only stressing that because if you put Ringling on your list of modeling schools I know for a fact you didn't talk to them. When I talked to Ringling I had 8 pages of questions single spaced. Just be sure to do your research big time.
