As someone who is looking for a rigorous school , Otis College of Art and Design was a great pick. As a college freshman at Otis, the Foundation year has roved extremely helpful in refining my skills and easing me into the workload and high expectations. The schools' small and compact campus gives this very unified and focused environment that differs strongly from other schools with larger campuses and enormous enrollment rates. Furthermore, Otis has extraordinarily talented professors with years of professional experience within their area of skill.

This is one of the least creative places I’ve ever been. It is a shame to call it an art school; you are put down for thinking outside the box. Prepare to sacrifice sleeping, eating well, exercising, having a life outside of school. The social life is nonexistent and there are very few people. If you have depression or anxiety don’t go here because you will be really stressed out. Professors sometimes start demos when we are supposed to be let out for the day so we have to stay. If you are sick you still have to come to class because you will be marked absent and you can only get 2 absences a semester. There is a 50% dropout rate. Don’t go here unless you are a perfectionist who wants to be a part of a company.
This school was better than I had hoped for, it was surprising to me how little people knew about this school. The school is well connected to the art world, and I have already been in contact with people in my desired field. The teachers here are all working currently in the art field. They go from work to teaching the students. Every class I have taken, although tough, has significantly improved my art and I look forward to seeing more improvement in the future. The school holds many events on the student behalf such as dog distress day to take care and reward their students. The environment at the school is so open and free and has such sweet and caring people. It is a friendly community of students and teachers who support a help each other. The school also has great credibility in the art world, so I know that getting a job will be easier
