grades like that you shouldn't have to much trouble getting into a 4 year school if thats the route you wanna take...you probably take the act in the spring right? thats the big one, take it seriously and you shouldn't have to much trouble, don't hype it up to be to big, because then you'll score will suffer because of nerves, if you haven't taken the act yet, I'd wait to start seriously searching for schools until you have your score back, thats when you really get a good idea of where you fit in

Update

I found this web site http://schools.awn.com/index.php?ltype=disp&id=13353

and it has a great search engine for schools. I found Kutztown University on the list and its one of the better art/film/animation schools and its not bad when it comes to the price not to mention that its not that far .

so right now Id like to know more about well animation like pay, number of jobs, do you normaly have to move to go to get a job. Ive researched this all ready I just want to know from some one that had to all ready go through what I will have to go through instead of just a web site.

I can take the SAT Or the ACT I need to pick soon but Iam not sure which.
O I heard there going to drop the SAT and replace it with the PSSA wich for right now is used in high schools in PA and In the next couple years it will take the place of the sat and might become country wide

take the act, the SAT is old news, most schools don't even require it for admission, almost all have an act requirement, act is what the look at first
