Financial Suicide's Thoughts:
Hindsight is always 20/20. Most eighteen year-olds have no idea what they want to do for the rest of their lives. I just remember sitting in the financial aid office, thinking, "I can't afford this," and that was at 1995 prices. But my parents reassured me that we'd "find a way," and I signed away my financial freedom. The "way" we found was Sallie Mae. It was perhaps, the stupidest thing I have ever done. Looking back, I would say that trading my future earnings for the rest of my life (or a large part of it) was NOT at all worth the degree I got in return. It is, for the most part, a useless degree. If you are talented, you don't need a piece of paper that declares your legitimacy for you. Save your money and enroll in a state school, or enroll in some sort of technical art school that will teach you the ins and outs of the commercial art world. KCAI worships only at the altar of high art, and anyone aiming to make an actual living from their art should look elsewhere.
