Hi, I'm new here, I was wondering if anyone who graduated from design schools in general could offer some advice for the lost soul. I'm an international student (graduated from a respectable design school in my country w/ a BFA in Graphics Design). It has been my dream to study abroad in NYC and my dream school is SVA. I want to someday work in the States.. and I have been offered various opinions on whether I should start over my undergraduate study, start as an undergrad transfer student, or just go directly to the graduate school and get an MFA. I've talked to a few friends who have graduated from RISD and some other schools, and they seem to think that if I want to get employed someday in the States, it would be far more advantageous to have a US degree of BFA, rather than a foreign BFA degree and a US MFA degree. Getting both BFA MFA in the States is not totally out of the picture, but I'm afraid it would take too many years and the cost in NYC would be prohibitively expensive. So, what do you guys think? For better job prospects in the future, should I get a BFA again or just go for an MFA degree in design? Would US employers in design industry really care that much about where you received your undergraduate degree if one had a more advanced degree? Thank you for any help!
