I am a mechanical engineer that decided to go to grad school for industrial design. I applied to 5 different schools and unfortunately I didn't get into my easy number 1 choice, Pratt, so I am having trouble what school is the next best on my list. The other schools include:
SCAD - Accepted
UArts Philidelphia - Accepted
UIC - Should hear by next week
NCState - Should hear by next
Pros and cons of each would be most helpful.
P.S. Both SCAD and UArts offered me scholarship money so the price will be about the same for each

UArts just feels too small which may raise issues when it comes to flexibility with electives and resources. UIC seems like it is not "non-ID undergrad friendly." For SCAD I have heard that the school is basically for profit which opens up the potential for some problems (not sure what though), but it makes the top 10 on numerous lists for top design schools and is very well known. NCState I do not know a whole lot about except that I can take a 3 year track to learn the foundation I missed out on, it is a state school and will be the cheapest.
