Senior Year Final Productions

I'm curious to hear how various institutions address the senior or final year project. For example, is the work done solely in the final year, or is there a pre-production term prior to senior year where story and so forth are worked out? Is the project individual based or team based? I believe Ringling and SVA do the senior year plus the Spring junior semester, but I don't know if it's individual or team based.

Opinions on pros and cons of each format are welcomed as well.

For SVA, I know they begin storyboarding and concepting in their junior year and are encouraged to begin modeling assets in the summer before senior year. I also know that students can choose whether or not to work on a project individually or as a group. Many will work on a project individually, but will still get friends/classmates to help with different aspects like animation, rigging, matte painting, or compositing.

I didn't go there myself, but that's what I've learned from being around many of their alums and current students.
