As a graduate from SCAD, I feel that the information you have been provided is somewhat flawed. I also heard the rumors about SCAD, and have found that most of these rumors were based around problems the college had in the mid-1980s.
SCAD is a fairly new school, and while it did have problems in the past with accredidation, it has recently been accredited and was a very intellectually stimulating environment. After having attended a premier college for my undergraduate program, I found that SCAD had a very in-depth and stimulating program. The students produced excellent work and had wonderful relationships with both their professors and each other.
All of my friends have received wonderful jobs after leaving SCAD, and I had the opportunity to intern at a wonderful museum/get a job as a curator at another museum. In addition, I have recently become a PhD student in my area of study. I could not have been more pleased with my experience.
The bureaucratic elements of the school leave a bit to be desired, but academically it was wonderful. I highly recommend SCAD as a school and Savannah as a town for living in. Best of luck!
P.S. Regardless of where you receive your degree, you will need to have an internship with an architecture firm after you graduate to receive full certification. In addition, it is recommended that all architecture students get a masters degree in order to practice.
