<p>I just got admitted to SFAI for Film and I am currently waiting from an admissions decision from CalArts. I am having trouble deciding which school I rather attend if I did get accepted to CalArts.</p>
<p>SFAI vs. CalArts:
SFAI is in my favorite city. As an activist, I would love to be in a city full of diversity and radical people. Also, I'm vegan and San Francisco has lots and lots of places for me to eat!
On top of that, I got a $12, 000 scholarship at SFAI, which would really help me out with buying my own equipment and all that good stuff. My sister just got accepted to SF State, which I think is awesome because we're pretty close and I would love to still be able to hang out with her, etc. SFAI, however, does NOT offer double majors or even minors :/ Everybody knows it's tough for an artists to get a job, so I was really hoping I could get a liberal arts minor (preferably something to do with poli. sci. or communications) that could help me get a job of some sort.</p>
<p>Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it goes without saying that CalArts' film program superior than SFAI's. They also offer liberal arts minors. I don't have a scholarship for CalArts, though (but I do have financial aid, so money is not really an issue). One thing I can't stand about CalArts is the location. It's in the middle of a dead suburban nowhere...I spent a month at a pre-college program there and there is no life in the surrounding neighborhood, metaphorically speaking. The only good part about the location is that it's only an hour away from LA (where I live), so visiting friends and family would be no problem at all. Also, I wouldn't have to try and work out a long distance relationship with my significant other like I would if I went to SFAI......</p>
<p>Please help! What should I do?? SFAI or CalArts???
Thanks in advance!!!!</p>
