What made you choose SCAD?
I guess it’s been a couple years since I’ve answered a question like this so in as cliff-notey of a way as I can make it:
Love and naivety.
Didn’t have much interest or experience with art, but my girlfriend at the time got in so I took an incredibly boneheaded romantic leap, applied there and nowhere else, never visited, miraculously got into the art school, got out of the relationship, was stuck there, ended up liking drawing quite a bit, and the rest is history. It was a terrible decision made for terrible reasons that just happened to work out extremely well despite a million reasons why it shouldn’t have. SCAD is a perfectly fine university, has its issues like any art school, but better resources than just about any other — none of that was remotely a factor into going there though.
Moral of the story: make wildly impulsive and short-sighted decisions and everything will work out perfectly every time, always, forever — nothing can go wrong making major life choices based on teenage romance. It worked for me, so it’ll work for you.
