Hey guys n gals. so, i'm already a student, but i'm at a difficult point now. As many others are. A lot of my friends are leaving the school complaining about cost and how they don't feel the courses are effective. Well, they're not even finished with the first year. I personally feel I don't have room to base that kinda of judgement, especially in pursuit of an Animation degree. While they're only going for graphics design or game design (offered at state universities and local community colleges). I've been looking around the internet, or how respected the Art Institutes are, are opinions are scattered. I see more good than bad still, so I'm happy with that. Now I'd like to ask those is in the field what there take on it is.
How respected is The Art Institutes in an Animation education in the business? Do employers/studios tend to hire from here? Do they have good things to say about the employees from the schools? For those who've attended Ai, what are your takes? Btw, my school is Pdx. Thanks!!!!! =D
