DD is a junior and we started looking into schools. We have some idea regarding art schools as we went through this with DD1.
@JBStillFlying @BrooklynRye I have been reading your posts since a few years back. With DD1 she was in PrattMWP but had to move back home for her own personal reasons and health during the COVID and she took a one year break. She decided to stay in state (Texas) at home and transferred to CVAD … @JBStillFlying I know you have a kid at SCAD. DD2 is inclined to RISD and PRATT but does not like the cold she was looking to SCAD too. With DD1 transferring to a state university art school, she is going through that review each year that you mentioned in one post. Its been extremely stressful to be under that program and to not know if you still are going to be able to continue becoz they cut down from a few 100s to 50 kids for Comm Design. I was NOT aware and would never know unless i read your information about SCAD. So SCAD has a review each year too? That might just stop DD2 from applying.
DD2 is a very ART loving child but she is not that typical art kid if you know what i mean. None of her friends are in art and she hangs out and behaves like a regular kid. This is not meant as a disrespect to anyone but we have to look for a fit her her kind for the 4/5 years even if she decides to go to a private art school. I have seen the kids at PrattMWP with DD1 and there was a good mix. I am assuming Pratt Brooklyn would be similar too. What about RISD?
DD1 was decided with PrattMWP so we did not do any school visits. I am thinking we will need to actually go spend a day in the schools to get a feel.
Comparing RISD and PRATT in the Comm Des, which would be more inclined to a city job or internship? I am assuming RISD is as well connected as PRATT even though PRATT is closer to the city?
She has a GPA 4.8 as of this sem of her junior year. Quite good in art I must say having won gold emblem in state art contests so her portfolio level could be a bit higher than average. She is attending the online NPD tomorrow so she will get some feedback. She is however not showing any inclination to SAT and with most schools going optional it has further reduced her motivation.
Sorry for this long post! A few years went by and it seems I have to start all over again!
