I went there for a year. It's a crapload of work dude. You have 10 classes a week. 2 a day 5 days a week. And it piles up fast. The most I worked was a Sunday at 11:00am straight thru to Monday morning at 6:00am doing 3 assignments due that week. You come out with some real strong work ethics though.
You can't choose your teachers or classes though, they are assigned to you. Unfortunately I had a lot of bad teachers at the time and ended up leaving. That could be all different now though. One of my old roommates teaches there now, and he's pretty damn good.
My advice would be to take a trip out there, take a tour of the school and when you get a chance, ask the students if they are happy with the school and their teachers. If you can't get out there try to reach someone online who is going there. I've heard some Kubies hang out at a site called pencilsketch.com?
They will send you a info packet with prices for tuition, housing and art supplies.
I'm guessing 12 - 14,000 for a years tuition?
FRANK FRAZETTA??????? WTF!!! Where did you hear that one?
STUDENT DISCOUNT?! Riiiiiiiiiiight.
Hey, it's like a 40 minute bus ride from Manhattan though, that's pretty cool. We went there quite a few times.
Take a look at SCAD. I think I heard Mark schultz and George Pratt teach down there. Don't limit yourself to only the Kubert school.
