It was too expensive for me to give it a try, but I've met a lot of people out here who loved their program. Plus, the school does a good job of ushering you into the industry through internships and getting some good gigs after graduating.
Just be sure to avoid the "Art Institute of San Francisco". Too many people I know went there and came out with nearly nothing to show for it.

What sort of realm would "expensive" be?

I was already on my way up and working in the industry and didn't see the need for it, is the ultimate reason why I didn't go. Had I been younger, maybe just out of high school, I would have bitten the bullet and paid to go there.

Seriously though, it's a good school.
Not really better than AFI though.
