New School of Architecture and Design is a FOR-PROFIT school that uses most of its tuition money for recruitment and advertising.

PROS:

Location, in the heart of Downtown San Diego.

CONS:

PRICE: Price of tuition is high, return on investment near zero
INSTRUCTORS AND CLASSES: Few instructors and class choices

CAMPUS: What campus?, no student rest areas, no air conditioning, no drinking fountains

COUNSELING: Virtually non-existent. They got rid of their general guidance counselor. Freshman students working on models late into the night early in the morning with Exacto blades, need I say more.

First, NewSchool is a for profit architectural university. Meaning nearly everyone is accepted to the school despite their poor performance previously and honestly the fact that they should pursue another profession. This school is devaluing the architecture profession and especially the Bachelor of Architecture degree.
I recommend applying to either Cal Poly, UC Berkeley, or UCLA if you want quality education for a fair price. If price isn't an issue, Woodbury in San Diego or LA, CCA, or out of state are much better as evidenced by their faculty and student work.
3 of 5 of the thesis professors here have no more than 2 years of experience and only 2 of the 5th year thesis professors are licensed. Good Luck!

The first review is a sales pitch! I agree with the others on the type of PROFIT DRIVEN institution this is.The school is driven to accommodate THE SCHOOL and their own needs, not the students.If you are really looking to attend the school, come and talk to the students when there is no faculty or admissions (SALES PEOPLE) around giving the tours and you will get the real truth.

Last review is more accurate.
These people are only here to make money and will not address students needs or concerns.
The faculty actually window painted the school in order to sell it... something that they have become really good at; selling something with little value and making people believe that is world class.
I would really put your money else where.

Do not attend this Business!
This school is horrible!
I can guarantee you that the person posting the 5 stars is in the administration.
Talk to students before going. The school is a JOKE!

This wonderful school is hidden away on F street in the midst of the hussle and bussle of downtown San Diego. A perfect environment for serious architect students. The school offers 24 hour access to the facilities, personal studio space in the school, and the teachers and staff give their lives to each and every student to make sure they get the best education. Roughly 500 - 600 students total, givinig each student lots of one on one time with teachers. A+
