I need some guidance about art school, and was hoping I might be able to find the answer here. I just finished a meeting with a college placement-type counselor that works outside of school. I'm here because I love animation and want to be a professional animator (obviously), but I have no money and my parents don't want to co-sign anyhting that will set me back 50-100 thousand dollars in debt. My dream is calarts, but I wouldn't mind attending SVA, or Ringling-the only problem is that my parents want to have a "plan b" for me in case I want to change my major...so they want to send me to a liberal arts school with a good art program that is also cheaper. I just need some outside input on this-does it matter if you went to a designated art school in the long run? Will studios hire the guy who majored in character animation at calarts over an equally talented animator who went to god knows where?
