Help with finding a good art school!

<p>I need an art school with rolling admission in Maine, Massachusetts or maybe Toronto, CA. I'm already in the process of applying to Maine College of Art. I'm currently working on getting my GED because of school based anxiety issues, so hopefully a school that's willing to work with me and isn't too big. I would rather not fight for a little extra help here or there. I'm looking live in a dorm as well. If anyone has any recommendations that would be great! Thanks!</p>

<p>How much can you afford? What is your home state? Do you have a portfolio ready?</p>

<p>we’re financially secure so i’d like to weed out schools that we cant afford later on. my home state is maine. and i do have a portfolio ready with about 19-25 pieces i believe.</p>

<p>Realize that if you are financially secure you will probably be full pay, especially at an art school. Talk to your parents about what they can afford. [Boston</a> Admissions FAQ - The New England Institute of Art](<a href=“]Boston”></p>

<p>Yes, ask your parents if they’ll pay $50k+ per year. If they won’t, that may be a big issue.</p>
