I couldn’t consider schools like RISD anyway lol. Poor grades. I’ve been looking for Boston schools and maybe Pratt because I have a guaranteed recommendation letter from 2 alumni but I have yet to check any schools out. Should probably get on that.
I’ve heard really good things about Pratt and that’s really good that you have those recommendations! Don’t bother looking into the Art Institute in Boston because it’s in the middle of nowhere and the dorms are really far from the campus. That was my #2 choice until I fell in love with Columbia.
Finding an art school that doesn’t determine how great you are by your grades but your talent is always the best type of school in my opinion. check out MassArt and Montserrat if you like Boston ~ I also went to my guidance counselor a lot for suggestions on different schools :)
Sorry, I just love giving advice on art school and deciding on colleges because I found it super helpful last year having friends that had been through the process. If you have any questions at all, just write to me :3
