Something that is going on with my school in Pasadena is that it used to be a really hard school to get into, where most people failed on their first
attempt, and if you did get in the first time, you were pretty damn talented and had a promising portfolio.
In recent years, they have started letting in anybody and everybody which has resulted in packed classrooms (instead of the intimate teacher/student
relationship they promised), a shortage of supplies and space and equipment, a serious, crippling hit to the quality of the output, angry students,
unorganized teachers and faculty, and thus the professional world doesn't hold the school in as high of esteem as before.
Do you think this could be a time where they are trying to make money over having quality education, and thus they let anybody in and just drop them
when their skills and education are truly tested? Only after they get their money is when they let them go. Pretty f***** up. At my school this is the
case. People who shouldn't even make it into the school get 4 terms in before they are told they cannot go on. That is... about 60-70 grand that they
now owe with nothing to show for it.
