I was excited about attending SC, but ultimately disappointed with my experience. The cinema school is indeed very strong. The professors are challenging and acessible. It's sometimes not easy to get involved in production,however, and can be expensive. The social life is abysmal. The stereotype of the attractive but vapid frat/sorority type is absolutely true. While not outwardly snobby, they are quite exclusive. At the other end of the spectrum there are a lot of computer dorks. If you're not one of these two types, you probably won't fit in. The surrounding area is dull—there's nothing to do. You must have a car to enjoy L.A., which has somefun things, but is dirty and culturally revolting, full of shallow, materialistic people. Whilethe students are smart, there's not much of an intellectual atmosphere on campus at all. Students at UCLA are nicer and the neighborhood is a lot better. I'm glad I have my degree from this prestigous university. However, if I had it to do again, I would have gone somewhere else.
