I thought I wasn't going to get inDec 12 2004Art & Design Department
I thought I wasn't going to get in. I only took a drawing class and painting class, and had very few observational drawings in my portfolio, but for some reason they took me in. I had a 1130 on my sats, and a 3.6. They must have taken me in because of my academics, but even so I don't think I was a great candidate. I didn't even finish my application, I didn't send the letter of recommendation, and I still got in.
SAT: 1130 Male
InterviewMay 16 2004Art & Design Department
interview. i also took the precolllege. i thought it was fairly easy to get in since i didnt come from a HS that majored in art.
SAT: 1200 Female
I was accepted early -May 11 2004Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
i was accepted early - i planned to apply to RISD also, so my portfolio was basically prepped for a RISD application - what was that, draw a bike and a self portrait? that's what i showed pratt.
SAT: 1250 Female
I made a 20 piece portfolio, had a prettyApr 15 2004Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I made a 20 piece portfolio, had a pretty good SAT score (it does actually matter although I've forgotten what my score was), had a good high school GPA, did extracurricular activites like running my own Anime Club and being a Girl Scout. My portfolio was sent in on slides and Pratt seemed to like it. They have a pretty good acceptance rate as long as they can see you put effort in to your work.
I highly reccomend going for any and all scholarshipsFeb 26 2004Communications
I highly reccomend going for any and all scholarships and grants and loans you could possibkly qualify for. Money not being an issue makes things a whole lot easier.
I also reccomend having an in-person portfolio viewing.
