I've been debating if it's worth going back to college or not. I got a local diploma from HS in 2003 and went to Pace University in NY the following September. I admit, I never liked school but I struggled through it. I wasn't looking forward to college because I assumed it was the same nonsense as HS. Don't get me wrong, I like learning but sometimes you aren't taking anything different or interesting.
The reason I went to Pace was because my father and sisters graduated from the same school. In fact my dad loved that school for so much he end up working there. So, I got a big discount, so saying no to almost free education seemed kind of stupid.
Well, 51/2 yrs. I left with a BFA in Fine Arts. The reason I left late was because some classes weren't available. But I have to admit something, I didn't learn much. I mean, I got a good GPA and I got decent grades. But I hated that school because there wasn't a program I identify with. Closest was a BFA in Fine Arts. But quality wise, I would rate it slightly better than H.S. and content to be seriously lacking.
I actually stopped art after leaving.
I'm trying to get back in to it but it's emotionally disappointing.
I was thinking of going back to college a different one. Because after leaving I haven't found a single job. I applied online only, most career builder, monster, etc etc.
But would it be kind of silly going for a 2nd bachelors? In well, the same field basically?
First one from Pace University BFA in Fine Arts and then here a BFA in Computer Arts and Design?
Do you think I can transfer credits and just take the 3d classes or do I have to start all over again from scratch?
One reason that I want to go back to college is because I never did a single internship. I applied and interview for 4 and never heard back. And being a full time student and working part time I let the time slip by. So, I just really want to reapply for internships.
