thanks rebecca. I’ve been doing freelance design work since i was 15 (18 now). I cant say i’m super good at it, but its enough that I get logo/website/print comissions enough to keep me occupied outside of school and work.
My ultimate goal is to be working in animation, which is why I am considering AnimationMentor. I figure that with 2 years, and without the burden of ~$100,000(i’m trying to figure in money i have currently, money i would make working while i was there, and possible financial aid. it could come out to more or less than 100k, but anything more than 50k is huge to me) in debt, i will have a little bit more freedom of movement and not so much stress. Its a tough decision.
and as far as nerve wracking, not really. I did all I could to get in, if they do not accept me, I’ve got other options Choices are easier if i dont get in actually. I’m not concerned about making it in the long run, I believe i’ve got the ambition and motivation to get where I want to go, even w/o a big name school.
