SCAD-Atlanta/Art Institute Atlanta

I'm interested in pursuing a degree in Photography, I've read some bad reviews on City-Data regarding the Art Institute here in Atlanta from former students that had drop out (8 months), I figure they were unhappy, for whatever reason. I'm wanting to hear from those whom have successfully graduate or are in current attendance at these two institutes how was your experience (e.g. staff, student ratio, general information) in order to gain a better perspective about the difference in two schools. I know they're both fairly similar in tuition costs.

    I have heard wonderful things from my nephew who is an art major and will be graduating next summer. It is a very good place. Please look carefully at it. My friend in California also reccomends Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara for photography. She hired a lot of graduates for her production company.

    Sorry, I was talking about the Savannah campus and not the Atlanta one.

    I'm from that part of the world and I'm pretty sure SCAD is the school in Savannah...

    That's nice to hear about the SCAD-Savannah campus but I'm more interested in the SCAD-Atlanta campus, Atlanta where I currently reside. Anybody else?!
