1. The college I'm looking at sent me an email. I think their goal may have been to make me drool.

    1. @mrmattimation Ew Apple workstations.

      1. @jamster So like, out of literally everything on that list, THAT was what you pulled out?

        Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:16:57 UTC from web
        1. @mrmattimation Yeah, I have a strong dislike for Apple products.

          Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:17:36 UTC from web
          1. @jamster That seems almost irrational considering nobody's forcing you to use them.

            Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:17:51 UTC from web
            1. We were forced to use Apple crap in school

              1. @thewaifutyphoon I feel sorry for you.

          2. @jamster me too, I hate apple products, I like android (google in general) and microsoft!=

            1. @rainbowsdash We're going to get along amazingly.

    2. @mrmattimation ooh nice. Come to BYU and you'll get all that. If you get into the animation program you'll be in the best school in the U.S. according to John Lasseter and get to learn and use the latest version of Maya and other stuff. On the flip side your creative soul will be taxed and possibly crushed.

      1. @pony This school's closer. I don't want to leave the state to get into some fancy-schmancy Pixar school when I could get just as good an education at a campus twenty minutes away.

        1. @mrmattimation Pixar actively recruits from !BYU, but I don't blame you at all for wanting to study locally.

          Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:25:07 UTC from web
          1. @pony Yeah, well, I think I'd probably just end up being the one mediocre guy in a room full of geniuses. Even if I was interested in that school, Pixar wouldn't be interested in me.

            1. @mrmattimation You don't know that. Especially if you improve a kiwi ton while going there.

              Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:27:39 UTC from web
              1. @thewaifutyphoon I've been animating since I was ten but I still animate at a seventh grade level. It's pretty safe to say I'd be the slow kid.

                1. @mrmattimation you've also been doing this as a hobby and not something you're going to school for 100% of the time

                2. @mrmattimation Animation students generally spend a LOT of time in labs, based on my experience. Just be aware you might (continue to) not have a social life if you study in that field.

                  1. @pony Heh. Not something I'm unprepared for.

                    Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:40:09 UTC from web
                    1. @mrmattimation yeah, being married made it really impossible for me personally.

                      Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:44:34 UTC from web
            2. @mrmattimation Dreamworks too, and Sony, and Avalanche, and, well, pretty much any studio, but those are the ones that come to mind readily. I love BYU, but I agree you're probably going to be happier elsewhere. :P

    3. @mrmattimation Why isn't Blender in that list? D:< # #

      Monday, 07-Jul-14 06:18:47 UTC from web
      1. @thewaifutyphoon Because Blender's free, so it would be asinine to provide that to students.
