Visit Pratt and stayBrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Visit Pratt and stay the night on campus if you can, hang out in the commons with students and talk to them. Many students go to pratt because it is in the city, not because they want to work hard or make art. Consider your ability to focus in such a busy city.

Pratt is a factory-- the classes are big,BrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Pratt is a factory-- the classes are big, and the teachers are over-worked. Worse, in my opinion, is the extremely high price tag and inefficient bureaucracy. I left Pratt seven years ago, and I'm writing this review today because they sent a $2,000 unpaid tuition bill from SEVEN years ago to my house. They can't explain why I owe it, but they do want me to remit payment to a man named Greg Smith, who works for a real estate law firm in Queens. Sound shady? When you go to make payments at the bursar's office, there are holes drilled in bullet proof glass.

Question
Really the only complaint I have about PrattQuite BrightArchitecture
Really the only complaint I have about Pratt is the quality of the students. There are many brilliant people here, but there are also a lot of students who seem determined not to learn. It's probably a typical art school thing, but many of the classes here are very abstract and what is taught is a lot different than what was taught in High School. Instead of embracing this chance to grow as a conceptual thinker, many of the students do not try to understand and become a more holistic artist. For most majors Pratt is very intensive, so some students are sometimes disappointed that they can't party every day. It is really an amazing school and I know I am learning a ton. There are plenty of resources to get internships through Pratt, but being in New York it's fairly easy to find one independently. We don't have many sports teams or school spirit, but there are a decent amount of parties off campus. However, we are in New York, so house parties aren't a necessity.
