So umm yeah... I recently moved to Fayetteville Georgia with a friend from Phoenix Arizona which finally gave me the opportunity to go to an art school that's NOT the art institutes.. I really want to major in Animation as I love cartoons and want to animate my ideas... However other than the Art Institutes I could not find a school that offered 2D animation. I mean I know it's a dying breed, but I love cartoons over 3D, though 3D is awesome too...
Anyways... most of what I know is anime and self taught, but it hasn't gotten me very far as my learning style requires physical teachers... and I DO NOT have a high school diploma or GED yet (due to circumstances.) I read in their book they mailed me that students of exceptional skill or motivation can pass the requirements with supplementary materials? (recommendations, interview, portfolio, etc.)
...Do I stand a chance at getting in at all? Like can the diploma/GED requirement be skipped through those things?
Also, I live with my friend in Fayetteville and want to attend the Atlanta location... my friend told me that first-years HAVE to dorm at the campus. Is this true or not? I looked it up but found very differing opinions from people.
