4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Like I said previously, getting a job/internship is possible not only because of the emails you receive, but from the connections you have with your professors, or even with alumni who have found a job in their field.

Career Services: From what I've seen, there have been alumni who are able to take jobs as TA's for a while, and some alumni even help out with the books that SVA gives out for those who are interested in attending SVA.

Overall Experience: The quality of the courses are fantastic. The professors actually make sure you understand what to do during the curriculum. They answer their emails as soon as they can and they may even set up an appointment/meeting to see your progress if you wanted one.

Academic Experience: The workload isn't always crazy, but when there is a lot of work to do, you have to learn how to use your time wisely. The professors will help you through different programs, especially during freshman year when you take Digital Compositing. Drawing and Anatomy classes really help you with pushing poses when you animate. Also, there are plenty of opportunities if you either attend the special events that SVA sends you via email, or one of the staff members in our department sends you an email about internships. These events include animators talking about their experience at Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, Nick, or Cartoon Network and giving you, the student, a chance to ask any questions regarding the process of making a film or TV show.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Fantastic! So diverse, and the teachers are great.

Academic Flexibility: Many courses at this school have a very limited size, and once that limit has been reached, it is more difficult to apply for the class that you wanted, and it is even harder since it is all "first come, first serve". Also, classes have a specific schedule, some having a variety of times and days, but it gets to enter once you start planning for your courses and days are already filled, so adding another class can end up being a hassle. However, many teachers allow you enter into their class even after they are filled, either with a form, or you can simply take part for no credits or when you meet certain requirements.

Online Courses: To be fair, I did participate in online pre-college courses at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, but during this time I was on vacation with family, and I also applied for too many classes and the work load was too heavy in a short amount of time, so personally it was a terrible experience. Still, I stand for my opinion that online courses are too difficult for me. I work better in an interactive environment with easy access to communicate with teachers and students, and I would feel more comfortable working in a classroom than at my home so that I can be free from distractions.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The variety in courses is phenomenal! Aside from the basic courses that you are required to complete, which all still seem very interesting, there are many different elective courses that are available, expending on into different subject such as history and even science. Seeing different courses that focus on different methods and styles of art only makes me wish that I could be able to apply for all of them! Finding the right professor, however, is not easy, sometimes you'll end up with a teacher that has a sort of teaching style that doesn't help you at all, and the only way you can get a good idea on who the right professor is for you is to rely on other's opinions.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I've always known that the art world is very competitive and is not as important as business or medical careers, and it is also very specific so finding a good paying job in this career would actually be very difficult. Despite this, I only chose to be a part of this program only because it is something that I enjoy and that it makes me happy, as I grew up learning to pursue something that I will love doing, and luckily I'm learning of ways to earn money so that I would not end up struggling financially.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have heard so much of this school from many artists that I follow on social media, and looking into it and reading about the work ethic and reputation of this school, I knew that this school would be the art school to truly help me pursue my goals.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There were professors that wanted you to absorb all the information, so they constantly quizzed us and asked us randomly what was what, what to do after a certain step, how to get to which software, what were the hot keys to certain commands, etc.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They want to do your best and know the best to fully prepare for the real world.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Most of the time, if you want to do a big idea, it will take a lot of time. However, it's worth seeing when it's finished. Bringing your thoughts to reality and onscreen is the best feeling ever!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lots of money, but great education and experience

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You know that any of the teachers will work with you to help you get into your field.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am learning from the best people. Seriously, the professors are the reason to come here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are artists themselves living and working, so the critique you are going to receive is valid and not based on past experience but current events.

5 College Student

Academic Flexibility: The schedule of the courses is really flexible and there are a variety of choices of timetable.
