I applied EDII to UChicago but I want to look at other schools just in case. I studied in New York City with the CITYterm semester school and I loved it, so I started looking at some schools in NYC. The one with the most draw for me is The Cooper Union. I’m worried about applying regular decision to the Art School though, as I haven’t seen a posted acceptance rate for RD.
I am also worried about sending them my art for the Hometest, they make it sound like if you don’t get in, they’ll throw out your portfolio. (They ask for a lot too, 5 supplements, your personal sketchbook, the originals of your 5 best pieces, etc) Does anyone know if this is true?? I don’t want them to throw out all my work, that’s not worth it for me.
Some of my stats and stuff if it will help chance me:
I’ve gone to two Semester Schools, The Oxbow School and CITYterm at the Masters School
I graduated a year early at the top of my class
I’m currently on a gap year to do some independent research on experimental pedagogy. (to do this, I spent this semester at CITYterm and the summer at the Yale Summer Program in Astrophysics)
I interned in Medical Illustration with Barrow Neurological Institute
GPA - 4.2
AP Art - 5
ACT - 28
The other schools I applied to:
Brown|RISD Dual Degree
