Dear Younger Me, GO TO COLEGE AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS. You know what is right for you, so just do it! Do not follow the trends (not that you do), and do not let the voices of others interfere with your hopes and dreams. Follow your heart and you inner voice, you know what is the best for you. And above all, have fun while you are doing it. Yes, you should work hard (but do not over work yourself like you do a lot...) but having fun is the most important part of learning, because that is what you remember the most. Also, DO NOT WORRY SO MUCH. Seriously. You will hit some bumps in the road, but you have a great family that you love and will help you through anything. Make the best out of your experiences and live life to the fullest every moment. You never know when it will end. University is the best time of your life, you learn, live, travel, laugh, and above all else meet some of the most impressionable people you will ever meet in your life. Bon chance :)
artistic people looking to develop their skills in a serious and fast paced environment

If I could go back in time and talk to my high school self, I would tell myself to go to away school. I noticed that students who felt the biggest sense of community amongst peers are those who lived in the dorms. Those of us who live locally don't build relationship in the same manner primarily because we don't have to. I would also tell my high school self to be more driven, I didn't become a good student until college. During my senior year I had the worst senior-itis and it really affected my GPA, which in turn affected which grants and scholarships I could apply for, and left me to struggle for tuition money now. If my high school self had buckled down and pulled the grades that I knew were possible things would be different. The most important advice I could give myself then that still applies now is to follow your gut and do what you feel will make you happy. Don't do things for your mom, friends, or family... do them for you!
The kind of person who should attend this school is someone who is creative, hard working, and driven. You also have to be able to take critique. Though this is an art school the people who do the best aren't the most talented or skilled, they are the people who listen and adjust, the one's who buckle down and do the work.
The worst thing is probably the cost of tuition in addition to the standard cost of living in San Francisco. It is tough primarily if you are supporting yourself financially.

I would suggets students to not fell the pressure of going straight to a four year college, and attend a locla community college. At the age of 18 it is impossible to know what you wnat to be when you "grow up". I attened a community college and not until the age of 25 did I really know what I am passionate about and my career path way. We are growing year to year anf becoming our own person and realizing what really drives us, and we enjpy to do.
Some one who is motivated and determend to achieve the highest level of education. A person who will take advange of the opportunities avaible to its students.

You are sitting there wondering what you are going to do with the rest of your life right? You are considering college but will eventually back out from doing so because of the cost. Don't hesitate with the scholarships because they do help. Even if you think you won't qualify, there are a ton of opportunities out there to help with the cost. College is not as relaxed as high school but it is a necessary step before obtaining your ideal career. Try to not be overwhelmed with all the paperwork, just take it one page at a time. You will regret it if you don't take your education a step further. Though there are jobs out there that don't require a higher education, it will get you further than you could ever imagine in your dream career. You CAN make a name for yourself but you have to work for it. Your career will be more worth while if you work hard towards it. Don't be nervous, just go after what your heart desires. With dedication and hard work you will succeed.
I am in the process of applying, I would have liked to known how many hours per week would be part time student and how many hours would be considered full time. I would also like to know if I am able to choose a minor along side of my major.
Currently I don't find anything frustrating about this school.

As a high school senior, I was determined to take on the world head first, but I had always expected to have everything somewhat handed to me. It was not necessarily a matter of laziness, but more of a "victim of naivety" one. I was oblivious to the realities of the world beyond grade school - a place I had felt I blazed right through - so I believed that things would just happen without much of an effort on my part...a hard lesson I would soon learn. Classes were harder and work loads were heavier. Stress became a real factor, and so did disappointment and regret. Confidence is the key to success, yes, but you have to combine it with a headstrong work ethic or you will not achieve what you want to in life. Everyone says that high school is where you find out who you are, but to my graduate-to-be self I say this: your entire perspective on your life and career are about to change and for the better. Stay confident, but go forward with the drive to take charge of your dreams. Dream hard, live hard, but most importantly, work hard.
The school's location is far from where I currently reside, but that is the only downside that I have observed.
The academy is perfect for creative-minded individuals who long to gain the knowledge and skills that they need to succeed in a career in art. The programs combine art and business, which allows a student to channel their creativity into a specific field that will land them jobs outside of graduation.

I would tell myself to start brushing up or getting started learning Chinese or Korean for that could be helpful because you will get a Chinese roommate who doesn't speak English very well and make friends with a lot of Koreans, some of which are girls you might get a crush on. Make sure you work hard and don't slack off and do much better. Also heads up your Game 3D Production will be your worst class and a total nightmare. For your scripting final try a Rock'Em Sockem Robot game or something simplier your actual final was a total mess because you/me tried to do something too big for a starter class and make sure you put time and effort into it. Start attending the Analysis of Form workshops as early as possible you get to meet Ms. Yuka and Satomi there and get to know them early. Also hang out with your new friends you meet down there more often and go out with them for you may not be seeing them in the upcoming. Also, ignore Wenyi and Vickney its not worth it. Also be careful Nora is really shy and pretty paranoid.
Its an art school so its mainly for artistic students or students with a strong sense of art, style, creativity, and looking for inspiration. However, not everyone has to be artistic, it would help, as skills like programming and advertising can play a role. Also, this school works with two types of artistics: the visual ones with skills in physical art and design (fashion, fine art, illustration) and the technical side that tests one skills of using various software and computer programs (game programming, animation, web design) all to make art.
I guess students who aren't very dedicated. This school is hard and doesn't play around. If you don't get your act together you will fail your classes. I passed all my classes but I seen so many students fail classes that I passed and even dropped out. This school has a graduation rate of 10% per year so its rough. The stuff you will be doing will be hard but the school is fair when it comes to failing classes allowing you to make up the lost credits but will cost more to your tuition.

Academy of art university is a school that is providing me with skillsets I need to not only succeed, but be the absolute best in my field of Visual Development.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a senior I would try to warn myself of the finacial hardships that were going to accompany trying to accomplish my dreams. I always knew there were going to be price tags on my education, but I never had any idea of how hard my father was going to be on me because of it. The amount of stress that has put me through in the last half a year has been almost unbearable, but even so, I don't want to warn my younger self about that. I feel like if I warned her about the money strain, my father and her can plan more accordingly and she won't ever have to feel the pain I've felt from my father's harsh words and disappointment. At that time, my dad had complete faith in me and full support in my dreams. It was only when he realized what it was going to cost him that his expectations of me changed, his faith in me waivered, and his words became harsh. I would leave her with a wish of good luck and hope things would improve.
The school is incredibly expensive and having to pay for that every couple of months has put a huge strain on my father's finances and that in turn has put strain on me. My father has been especially hard on me to do especially well in my classes because of the large amount of money he has to pay to have me attend classes at the university. I have greatly enjoyed my classes, but my father's lack of faith in my ability to do well, stems from the amount of money he has to pay for my classes.

I would tell myself to take things slower and do much more research on universities. I would also tell myself to do some serious soul searching before taking the jump into a major I shouldn't have started in the first place.
The best thing about AAU are the instructors. The instructor are or have already worked in your desired field of study, such as animation, illustration, television, etc. While there are a few instructors that aren't so great, the majority are extremely knowledgeable and wear their passion on their sleeve.
I mainly brag about industries like Dreamworks or Pixar coming to visit the campus.

I think that anybody can attend this school, unless your major is science then NO you can not attend this school. If you are not a person with an imaginary mind the school will change that for you and give you an even bigger mind of what you would like to know and study. If your good at communicating in so many ways (ex. in english or foreign languages or in acting, or in any other courses) than you are perfect for this school. I hope that people who are interested in arts should regard my school Thanks so much.
I haven't been to my school yet, but i think that my school is really awesome and that there is nothing that will make it seem so frustrating as long as you know what it is that you want once you apply there to study then there is a lesser chance of you dopping out or changing subjects which would cost you a lot of extra money and no one wants to do that especially not in college. I really don't see anything wrong, I like my school and that is why i have decided to attend it.

I have not actually attended my school yet but what I can tell you is that everyone I have spoken to has made it known that my success is their goal. The staff have been helpful, kind and encouraging. In the short time I have been in contact with them they have made me feel relaxed as I navigate going back to school after so many years away.
The choices we make in life always have an effect on our future and while I would never regret the choice that led me to my amazing husband and gave us two beautiful children, I have always wished I never dropped out of college. Now here I am at 43 years old attempting to juggle my schedule as a full time wife and mother with my 40+ hour a week job and attend school at least part time. As excitied as I am of this new turn my life has taken, I know that if I had only made the decision to stay in school 23 years ago obtaining my education would have been so much easier. In the end, no management postition was worth delaying my education especially since I never wanted a career in retail anyway.
The type of person that should attend the Academy of Art University is someone who has a wonderful imagination and is creative. Someone who enjoys the spotlight but in eager to learn what happens behind the scene. A person who has a strong knowledge in computers would be a huge help in many of the degree programs they offer.
