I have been looking at the DAVE school which is located in Orlando Florida (where I live) at Universal Studios. www.daveschool.com is the website for anyone who wants to look. It is the Digital Animation and Visual Effects school. The problem I have is making a decision on whether to take such a HUGE step and gamble because I am scared. The school is 5 days a week starting this Jan. from 6p-11p and I would have to go after my job which I work 8p-4:30p and am subject to being called back in. I cannot afford to quit my job to go to school so that is one problem. The other is that the school costs $33,500 and lasts 1 year but has financial aid available to make it affordable hopefully.
Basically, I need advice from anyone who can give it on whether or not I should leave a job that I dont have to worry about loosing, but will not be happy at, to pursue my dream job which may or may not be secure. There is no garauntee that I would get a job after the school which is another worry but they also have job placement and companies like Industrial Light and Magic, Pixar, Sony Dreamworks, Imageworks, etc etc.
siiiiiiiiiiighhhhhhhh................ what to do what to do??
