As someone who graduated from one of the 2 year schools I would highly recommend going to the 4 year school. Honestly, for a successful career as an artist it's your work and ability that's WAY more important than whatever degree you may show up with...But it would be a mistake to limit yourself. With the 4 year degree you will able to teach art, should the opportunity present itself.
I have said this exact same thing a thousand times. Why is it not happening? Got me. Sometimes I think I'm living in bizarro world. What are those techies DOING up in NYC? I suspect it's sitting around eating chips and watching reality tv because it doesn't seem like they're doing much to improve the site to me.
