    From what I can gather, Pratt's illustration department is very experimental and many students focus on digital work. It might be exactly what you're looking for.

    And I'll add that I have spent my whole life here and never felt like I was in danger.

    The biggest thing I can stress is TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE DIA! It's free for goodness sake! How many art...

    I'm not sure about the schools you've listed, but most art schools are located in not-so-great areas. I've heard horror stories from SCAD, MICA, and pretty much every major art school.

    From what I have heard (from students and admission deans alike) is that the statement of intent is not really important and it rarely makes or breaks and application.

    If art were linear, you're argument would be valid. But there is much to be learned from every artist. Portfolio's are like a statement a student makes upon entering college. It's more than just...

    From my very basic understanding of MFA programs, they focus more on conceptuality and assume that you already have technique.

    There are many ways you could brush up your technique, including...

    Most art schools require a hefty chunk of liberal arts classes. They're there for a reason. Maybe that animation studio won't read your thesis, but if they're doing an animation taking place in a...
