Not only is SCI-Arc among the top schools in the world, it's network is so vast that I know I'll have a secure career once I graduate, both in the USA and internationally! And previously being an art major, SCI-Arc has the perfect unison of artistic design married with architectural design. They also have the top software and tools to fabricate and build whatever you can think of. The teachers and staff are the top of their field and help guide students through the program.
Review Southern California Institute of Architecture
I've never worked so hard in my life but I've also never learned so much before. The environment of SCI-Arc is intense and encourages you to put your best effort forward. You're surrounded by talented students and faculty every day and no matter how difficult school gets, there is not a single day I haven't felt inspired.
I was able to receive financial aid but did not have any type of scholarship to SCI-Arc. From what I hear, SCI-Arc scholarships are rare. It's stressful because the tuition is so high and our supplies for midterms and finals are incredibly costly.
