Question by whitefire0624: should I go to an art institute or regular university/college?
I am in a very tough situation here. I have went to the new York art institute and I love it there. but I’ve been told that it’s better to go to a four year school the lady from the arts institute has told me that for the field I want the art institute fits me well. I want to do digital film making.. and because I have passion for what I want to do this school is right for me. I want to go to nyu or five towns college, but I don’t know if the art institute would be better? what would be the difference?

Do not go to an Art Institute. They are very expensive, lie about where their graduates get jobs, and are not granting degrees you can use outside of art related jobs, which there are very few of. Since you won’t be taking things like English and math, employers won’t recognize a degree from an art school as equal to a regular bachelors degree.
