My dd is a HS senior and wants to major in illustration. We’ve been to tour Pratt, SCAD, MICA, SAIC, RISD and Ringling, so she has been around. Ringling she thought was too structured, SAIC she thought was not structured enough, RISD intimidated her (?), MICA she loved, Pratt was her favorite before she saw MICA and MICA was the favorite before she saw SCAD. She applied to all of them plus VCU Arts which we haven’t visited but have a friend there and know its good too.
Today she got her first acceptance, SCAD. It’s her favorite really, so it may be the one. She has a 33 ACT so hopefully she will get money from these places (we also have a kid at George Washington Univ. $$$). I’ve read the negative press about SCAD but she really had a good feeling there.
Does anyone have any feedback about SCAD from experience? I’m anxious to see if she gets $$. Any feedback will be appreciated.
