for the summer precollege art courses...
is Parsons really better and more recognized than FIT?
because I was reading a couple of books that reccomend programs for people interested in the arts/design, and they mentioned RISD and Parsons, but not FIT.
and I just finished two 3week courses at FIT, and I'm kind of annoyed because it was hard work and I have a friend doing Parsons and it really seems to be the same level, but I picked FIT because RISD is like thousands of dollars, and Parsons is about $900-$1000 for 2 weeks, while FIT is only $700+ since I'm from NY, you get another $200 off, so it was only $500 for 3 weeks.
(keep in mind ~$100-$200 is additionally spent on supplies)
Also, I'm not from the city so I have no way of getting there besides that my dad works there, and his office is 2 blocks away from FIT but about 70 blocks away from Parsons and we already have to leave at 6:30 to make it through rush hour traffic and if I went to Parsons, we'd have to leave at like 5:30 in the morning, and my dad usually goes to work really late, like around 11AM, so I already had to work really hard to convince him to do this, and I didn't think I could stretch it THAT much.
anyways, do you think admissions officers will not look at my classes at the same level as students who took courses at Parsons?
