    I don't know about everyone, but I was offered an incredible merit scholarship and of course it doesn't cover everything, but most of it is covered. Try to get as many scholarships as possible because in the long run it helps a lot, especially because New York is so expensive.

    Personally, I have had the best time of my life at Pratt. In order to get the most out of your college life you have to apply yourself to your work and take as much time to explore the city as you can. Pratt is located in an adorable part of Brooklyn that is very inviting and fun. You will take field trips to the most famous museums in the world and visit incredible locations in the city throughout the school year that wouldn't be possible if you lived anywhere outside of New York. Take advantage of these opportunities!!!

    As expensive a school as Pratt is (tuition on average is 27,000 per semester), the money is definitely worth it. Things that are broken are fixed within the week, communal bathrooms and the cafeteria room are cleaned daily. The school is constantly upgrading it's buildings and equipment to the best for it's students and the campus is always catered to. The teachers are friendly and help to build you up as an artist, architect, or author and the classes will always teach you something new and important.

    I can't say yet whether Pratt is worth the money. While you are paying for the facilities you're also paying for the environment, a place where other striving artists are working and where you can get advice and opinions on your work. The school itself is expensive, but they do provide some financial aid, and offer jobs on campus.

    Yes, Pratt is ridiculously expensive, but it is a brand-name art school that offers a wonderful education and will help you reach your career goals. It also offers wonderful financial aid and many scholarships if you put enough work into your portfolio. Many students who did not come from wealthy families manage to go through Pratt without a ridiculous amount of loans. It just takes putting in the time with your financial aid counselors and fully exploring each option you have.
