HI, I?m a senior this year and Ive been trying to find a good film school, too bad I?m not getting any help with the search from my guidance councilors (They aren?t very good.... I think its too many kids not enough time with each one) But that?s besides the point I guess. Ive looked at a few schools, some in Boston, some in California, some in Florida. It doesn?t really matter where the school is, (it would actually be nice to get away for a while :) If anyone has any advice for or against certain collages I would love to hear it! Thanks!

My school, Columbia College Chicago, might be worth checking out for you. www.colum.edu

We rarely get mentioned along with the famous schools on the coasts, but we do have an enormous film program that's pretty darn good depending on what you're doing. It's also considerably cheaper than schools like USC or NYU. Tuition will be increasing next year, but it should still be like half of what they charge. The cinematography program is quite good, so if that's what you'd like to head towards, I can certainly recommend it.

I'm studying Cinematography and Visual Effects, and I'm pretty far along in the curriculum, so I can answer any questions about the school that you may have.
