I'm in my second year at a tiny liberal arts, Great Books school. I came here not really knowing what I wanted to do in the future, and I eventually settled on clinical psychology. After two years here my interests have expanded greatly. I've been sewing most of my life, but fashion design always seemed too ridiculous. Now that my future is looming it's something I really want to pursue. I am interested in SCAD because of the location (close to family I'm currently very far from, small town by my standards, warm!, near ocean) and curriculum. Many other posters have complained about the lack of electives and liberal arts requirements. For me that's a huge plus, since I've done nothing but those things for the past two years. I also actively read and study humanities and social sciences on my own, so I'm really looking to go to school for something that is much more difficult to learn on my own.
Can anyone give me general opinions of the program?
Other places to consider (besides Pratt, Parsons, and FIT)?
Experiences of other transfer students?
Do students come into the program with a lot, little, or no experience with design and/or sewing?
