@rocklanmaine So sorry I just read this! I had an absolute blast. I think it was totally worth it, and it made me fall in love with NYC! If you're into art and design and plan to major in it, I highly encourage this program. I got to meet sooo many people from different US states and hung out with international kids too. I loved the course and the freedom they give you (12 am curfews) and exploring the city during free time. People were suuuuper artsy, so I really felt like I belong. I didn't like the super cold AC at the dorm and the cafeteria food...If you're applying for housing they make you get a card. Kind of a rip-off. Other than that, feel free to PM me if you need more info!
