Expensive school, on top of supplies and daily living prices in Chicago with the 9% sales tax.

Great if you have loads to spend to experiment per teacher and curriculum recommendation, but if you're not super financially well-off, I'd highly recommend looking elsewhere.

Also, if you are looking to get techniques out of your education, SAIC is not the place for you. Except for their (exceptional) fashion program and some paths in VisCom, the other majors are all find-your-own-way-to it.

A good fine arts school for those with money, not great for technique, design, or most middle- to lower-middle-class income students. Financial aid will be little to no service, as will the Career and Co-Op center.

The Art History is generally superb, and many of the liberal arts classes such as writing/english are good as well.

A VERY heavy workload??how people manage to have a social life and manage to turn in masterpieces I will never know.
