    Savannah college of arts and design offered a technology updated college with all the facilities provided. My aunt was the first to tell me about the college and the perks of being a part of it. I was totally impressed by the creative careers they were making so I applied with a $50 application fee on their online portal.

    This college is very famous for the course it provides. It has many different degrees. I wanted to pursue my passion for interior design. Many positive online reviews and a lot of online searches later I zeroed my aim at this college. I applied online and paid $40 as application fees.

    Course Curriculum

    8/10

    The course was designed to give us the freedom to choose our passion. Our uniqueness and personality were also groomed which is very important for a creative course like this.

    A member of the staff came to my highschool's art classes and spoke about the school. After that my friends told me they wanted to go. After researching, I applied and learned more about the school and I got motivated to go. It was my dream school and the only one I applied to. I wouldn't change a thing

    Exams

    They want you to have decent grades. I got a 3.2 GPA and a 890 on the SAT and I still got accepted. I joined this school because they had things a lot of other schools didn't offer. SCAD had opportunities that I wouldn't find anywhere else. People stress out about this school but at the end of the day if you aren't getting as you can get in

    Because it is filled with art and design and I wasn't really sure if I wanted to study writing or painting I just knew that I wanted to do something related to creativity that could leave an impact in the world as aesthetically pleasing.

    Course Curriculum

    10/10

    I think it is very productive and close to reality for what I am doing. Without a doubt, I am being prepared for the outside world of writers and publishers by trying my best to start getting those done since now.
