Take some figure drawing courses at a local community college to enhance your portfolio before you decide to go here. Drawings from life are all admissions counselors are looking for, so be sure you have several examples in your portfolio.

Getting in wasn't my problemFeb 20 2003Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Getting in wasn't my problem. I reviewed and interviewed with a professor and the chairperson of ComD at Pratt. It all went very well. My problem was getting my paperwork taken care of. I submitted my acceptance papers in March of 2002, and when I called to follow up, I was assured that all was well. When I arrived in Brooklyn in August, all was far from well. My immunization records were lost--actually, all my records were lost--except for a single sheet of paper that contained my old PreCollege summer program application. Admissions is the only logical culprit, since that was where my paperwork went. My advice? Follow up as much as possible. And don't ask someone if they see your records and they know they're being processed. Ask them who they are and when THEY will process them. Force it-make it their problem. And don't ever, EVER talk to the admissions receptionists. Always talk to your counselors. The receptionists only complicate matters with misinformation and lies.
SAT: 1250 Male
