I'm a rising senior considering art school. What are your thoughts on it? I'm thinking about applying to SCAD.
The decision to go to art school is a personal one that should be based on several factors, and your feelings about the art school experience may change as you’re “in it” or “out of it.” My feelings about art school are different now than they were before I became a part of the system, so to speak.
Things to consider:
1) Financially, am I able to do this? Art schools, especially private art schools, are expensive. Are you going to be able to foot the bill, and if you’re not, have you weighed whether or not the available federal aid programs will be able to help you out sufficiently? Student loans can be a complicated business if you haven’t read up on what you may be eligible for after applying for different state aid, like the New York State Tap. Out-of-school scholarships, while a major pain and timesink to sort through, can also save you thousands - I applied like crazy my senior year of High School and managed to snatch up some of the “free money” offered by different places by writing essays about my fabulous qualities and, like, how the world would be like, so much better if everyone would like, look at more art and stuff.
More under the cut so I don’t stretch out anyone’s dashboard.
Thank you to everyone for your birthday wishes! I’m so glad 7-11 has commemorated my birth by giving out free slurpees. Enjoy the weird icy nectar from my life force
