I went for a campus tour, and the experience was great! The reception was very nice, got us on a tour very fast. Two tour guides (students studying at Pratt) took us on a 2-hour tour, answering our questions while giving great information about the institution. The campus is beautiful, definitely a calm getaway from the busyness of New York city, with inspiring sculptures around a very green area. The studios looked very professional, and the security system is very fast and trustworthy.

Pratt excels at most everything. It's a great school with amazing professors who know their stuff and treat you like an equal, rather than a student since they acknowledge that you'll be competing for similar jobs as you make your way into your respective fields.
The only problem I really have with Pratt is that it's not as competitive as I'd like it to be. The critiques on work feel like their there to make students feel good about themselves rather giving them helpful feedback that will lead to stronger work. However, it's still a very constructive environment where everyone helps each other out.
LOVEEEEE. The students, professors, staff and the cats are amazing. Everyone feels comfortable, free, and happy. Classes are of high quality and students really learn and do their best efforts. There are so many extremely talented people. I currently go to Pratt and I love it. I couldn't be happier anywhere else. An environment like this makes you feel confident and want to learn and do what you need to do. The dorms are not amazing but we're art students, we don't really care, because either way we'll make it cool and beautiful with our art. I believe Pratt gives the best education there is and after graduation I'm sure every graduate will be incredibly successful. Unfortunately I can no longer attend Pratt because of lack of funds, but I will do everything I can to go back. This is why I'm applying to scholarships.
