My D got is trying to decide between these school , likely just Pratt and RISD
She is interested in painting and illustration .
Any thoughts on what would be best ? Both within 2 hour drive
She has concerns about RISD rigorous schedule with full day studio classes ( at least first year ) she says students there say with all the additional homework they don't get much sleep
My impression is that RISD is stronger in her areas of interest , and has an edge on reputation . Pratt has a better campus and is in NYC ... with seemingly mor opportunities for internships ( although RISD students have access to brown and great winter program for internships .
Any help would be greatly appreciated . I have no arts knowledge .
