    I've decided I really want to start looking for a photography college. The reason I haven't been looking in the past is usually the prices for an art school is kinda high. But I actually found out there is a scholarship from the government that will pay full tuition if you are related to any past U.S. president (I'm related to good ol' George :D ) You just have to be able to get into the school.

    So now that I told you that pointless stuff, how many of you have atended a real school for photography? I've been Googling all over and everything I get just seems like an add for someone. What are some of the top schools. I was really just into the art side of this but when I started my new job I kinda got introduced to seeing someone who shoots weddings which showed me a different side of it. That got me sorta interested in that, and I'm trying to find assitant jobs. I also really started liking fashion and portrait photography. What are schools that would be good for this stuff? New York Institute, Ohio, Oklahoma, Brooks, Art Institute?

    Savannah College of Art and Design

    www.scad.edu

    As far a I know this place is really renowned

    Also check North Carolina school for the arts.

    I have 3 friends who go to this school. 1 has graduated and 2 are enrolled now.

    1 is actually going for photography.

    Good luck.

    I don't know about the ratings, but those among the top tier schools.
    NYIP won't be good if you are looking for a Bachelors or Masters program.
