Hello all,
Im a senior in highschool and want to go to film school for cinematography. I though I found a good college, it being columbia college hollywood or maybe cc-chicago, but now ive been reading and it seems people dont like it there. I dont want to go to any of those really high-end colleges like usc ucla...(mostly because i cant afford it) but a small four year college with a good cinematography program. There are alot out there but im having trouble finding a good one. My only restrictions are money really, so anyone have any suggestions? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hmmm. We have a Columbia College here it town and I've heard good things.

In your research what is being said specifically other than they don't like it?
