RISD vs Pratt ( vs parsons )

artdecisionartdecision Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
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 .

Thanks !
