I would recommend UCF anyday over AMDA. I don't want to sound negative, but it is hard not to sound negative when all you hear are very negative things about AMDA. I'm not saying AMDA is a bad school, but its reputation lures me away from their "BFA" program. At UCF, you will receive lots of performance opportunities, and it is accrediated. You know your degree will mean something in the end. You won't simply be paying for classes that won't send you anywhere, which is what I fear about AMDA. UCF is also a very good school all around, so I wouldn't give that acceptance up for AMDA anyday. In the end, it's totally your decision, but I would consider AMDA's reputation.
