My daughter was accepted into three animation MFA programs:
RIT, USC and UCLA. She is an amazing quick study and has developed a strong background in animation using Maya and Z brush etc. She has taken some animation courses as an undergrad and is a pretty good generalist in all areas of the animation pipeline. She wants a program that will challenge her and hone her skills a bit more. Her undergrad was in digital design.
RIT offered her a 9K scholarship. Since their tuition is only $33K to begin with, this reduces their cost to24K. She could also be eligible for TA or Graduate assistantships too.
Both USC and UCLA for out of state is about 37K each year.
I was wondering about the RIT program.Is their program respected in the industry? Do they have any significant industry contacts? I do know that both USC and UCLA are very well respected.
