It's true. If you are serious about drawing comics, and willing to put in the work go for it. You'll be drawing 8 hours a day at school and 8 hours of homework, so figure 16 hours a day of drawing. If you approach it like a normal school and slack off and party and do the minimum you won't improve and will waste your time there. Unlike other schools where the degree is the endgame, the endgame there is your portfolio, so if you don't bust your ass you won't power up, your portfolio will look like shit and you will have wasted your time and money. The kubert school is like the navy seals of art schools, and when I was there it was like a 40% drop out rate from year to year, so my class was like 60 people first year, 40 or so second year and I think 25 or 30 graduated 3rd year, of that 30 maybe 10 or 15 that I know of are getting work. So like I said if you're ready to bring it and are ready to draw nonstop for 3 years straight go for it, if not then you're probably not ready for the kubert school. Good luck!
