Article about AI and other schools at Bloomberg

Article posted today at Bloomberg about the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.

70k for a degree in "game design" wow that is just sad. Don't be suckers like the girl in that article.

Game design is like 41k here in Vancouver, unless you fail a lot and have to retake each course twice, you will need to pay 70k. And yes, everyone starts off with little pay, but 12 dollars an hour? Did she even try to bargain for a better pay? I have no idea what is the living standard down at the States.

She said she feel like she didn't attend school at all, I am so sorry to hear about that because 2 years in school and she didn't learn anything that can give her a clear sight of her future career, and she went to be a stripper after the first job went sour. Again, the game designer are awesome here and they look like they are learning and have a bright future in the industry. At least I don't see them changing their career path with a few failure on the road.

Edited: So i misread it as a diploma, so a degree is 4 years for 70k? Full sail game art degree is 75k give or take. 4 years in school, I am pretty sure she know what is going on in the industry, it won't take a person to realize if the school sucks and won't get you anywhere in half a year? And a degree for 12 bucks might just be a wrong step into the industry. I am sure if it is common then no one will be in game design.
