So here's my top ten of schools I'm applying to (in order of preference):
1.U of Cincinnati
2. California College of the Arts
4. Art Center
5. Arizona State
6. Academy of Art
8. Mass College of Art and Design
9.Rochester Institute of Technology
10. New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJ resident)
I am going for a second bachelor's and am looking for feedback from current students at any of these schools. (I've gotten a lot of good feedback about UCin which is why it's at the top!) This list is based on things I am looking for in a school (like affordability, strong design network), portfolios and the input from various threads. I am hoping to do campus visits sometime in the Spring. I am interested in designing a little bit of everything-product, furniture, automotive, medical etc and maybe some interaction.
I know you can't really compare apples and oranges but I'm leaning more towards a traditional design education as I see myself as more artistic but still like to think about the engineering side of things.
I have a list of 5 long-shots which are either more than I would like to pay for or are overseas. Should I bother applying?
1. Design Academy Eindhoven
2. Royal Academy of Art
5. Syracuse University
