I was an International student at the school.
First and formost advice for all international students is that the school is a vocational school and the Visa you get is an M-1 Visa.
the only and only glitch with this visa is that you are not given a social security number for this type of visa and in US you need social security number for everything like getting a cellphone conection, Drivers licence, opening a bank a/c etc.
Please make sure to get letter of student status from the college, a number of them, to avaiod these problems.
Though the college is extremely hard, considering the fact that you undergo intense training for 10 months, andyou spend many nights in your finals without sleep,i think its of utmost for astudent in this school to have emotional support from the family and friends all the timeto keepyou going.
Infrastructure wise, and faculty wise,you wonnt find such anywhere else in the world as far as photography field is concerned.
