DD is looking at SVA at the suggestion of the admissions counselor at SAIC. I have been looking at some posts that refer to SVA as pricey. However, I find the tuition to be less than MCAD ($29,500), MECA ($27,550) or SAIC ($34,200). Is it the housing that makes it pricey? Or is it comparison to public colleges? Is there a public college that has the same ambience of an art college at a lower cost? She definitely does NOT want the big campus experience, and definitely wants a BFA in Illustration. MCAD is currently her 1st choice. Ideas please?
