What about Creative Circus?

Just finished Pick Me and loved every word. In your section about the best Portfolio schools int he U.S. and you didn’t mention The Creative Circus in Atlanta (saw you speak there few months back – nice job). I currenlty go to school there and feel it’s right for me. However, I also have no idea what the hell is going on in the world of advertising, as I haven’t worked in the industry yet. Reading your list, my heart skipped a beat not seeing my school. Just like you would tell me the truth if my book sucked – DOES MY SCHOOL SUCK?

intro What about Creative Circus?Your school does not suck. In fact, we think it’s very good and were even more impressed when we saw it for ourselves as part of our book tour. We named some of the better schools in Pick Me but certainly not all—we didn’t attempt a comprehensive list and of course there are likely quite a few schools out there we aren’t familiar with that are very worthy.

We have a lot of faith you’ll enter the real world well prepared after your education. You’re in a demanding school with a pile of very successful alumni that are the best evidence that it offers a great program. Have fun and we hope you can breathe again now.
