Creative Circus vs, Portfolio Center?

Dear Jancy: what are your thoughts about the Creative Circus and Portfolio Center for a prospective student in graphic design..I’ve visited both schools but still not sure where I should go. I liked the whole vibe and energy at CC but I think it might be a little more geared towards advertising. Do you think the design program at CC is on par with what PC has to offer? Or would PC be my best option.

intro Creative Circus vs, Portfolio Center?They are both good schools. We’ve been to Creative Circus and are very impressed with the program. Nancy was just there to lecture and also saw a lot of students at portfolio reviews in NYC during Ad Week that showed there’s a lot of good going on. Student work on both sites is impressive (,, both are putting out people with sophisticated portfolios and we know CC has a very high employment rate for grads. The PC site shows alumni with excellent job experience. We don’t have as close of a view to Portfolio Center. If the work and teaching staff credentials don’t help you make your choice another great way to know what you’d be walking into is talking to grads. Both schools can connect you to students and alumni.
