Miami Ad School: a world of wonder

In school with crazy creatives and stimulating conversations, the world was our playground. The ideas we came up with all had endless possibilities and no budget or objective would get in their way.

Out here though, in "no ad man's land" my inspiration wanes from day to day. My crazy ideas come and go. And my enthusiasm is not as timeless as it once seemed. DAR! The school does nothing (really) to prepare you for the HUM DRUM of the real-world of advertising.

The program was amazing. It let us dream and play in our own imaginary world where advertising was exciting and new every day. It gave me the tools to change a tired, traditional WILL DO industry to a provocatively, creative WANT TO one. I'm just looking for a good fit now, an agency and people that get what I'm talking about.

yeah, I went this January and graduated end of March. We then went on an agency field trip in New York. It was great!

are you thinking of applying?

yeah, i'm actually halfway done with the bootcamp in Minneapolis... was talking to Jerrod New last night about the portfolio review - he gave us too good of a picture with regard to the NYC review... how many agencies did you guys have meetings with?
thanks,

I am so happy I have managed to come across your page. I have been thinking about going to AP boot camp for almost a year now and have so many questions. Maybe you could help me out?

Hi,
I've come across the AP BootCamp, and i'm thinking of giving it a shot.

Will the school provide you with enough work/connections to help you find work?
