Honestly it wasn't before I was accepted, but the free tuition is incredibly tempting. I actually applied to just under 20 schools (which everyone freaks out over), but i figured if I did everything I could and ended up going to a local school(which I refuse to do) at least I did my best. Some of those schools included the Claremont schools (no result yet) and the school of the art institute of Chicago, Marymount Manhattan, Fordham, the list goes on. I would like to go to an art school, but cant afford it. Soka offers very general degrees-all liberal arts with a focus in humanities, environmental studies, international studies, or.. i forgot the last one. What schools are your son considering?
