Please forgo those private $ $ for-profit schools such as the ‘art institute’ and instead go to the much more affordable community college (and/or traditional university). This consumer site has many posts by former students about those private for-profit tech schools including the ‘art institute’, and please heed the students’ warnings: http://www.ripoffreport.com and can search.
