The accommodations people in the lac are very willing to assist and advocate for you. They are friendly and helpful.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you don't vibe with a teacher in the first two days switch out as fast as you can. They don't use scare tactics, they're mostly just mean.

Some of the professors are good at giving advice design-wise and they can be really encouraging. Some classes seem badly organized and structured. First-years of architecture is an eye-opening experience. Contrary to what people may think, it is actually not that difficult. It just seems like a great load because it is the first time we experience such a culture and environment. It is important to sketch and to clearly think out your ideas and design. Every move and detail must have a purpose and intention. The library is nice and has many books that are inspiring and can help influence the design process for projects. It is an expensive institution which is not something that is appealing, but it has some good qualities. Mental health can take a toll, it is recommended to have a source of support somewhere. Some don't like the counselors from campus so I'd say look for a better source outside. On-campus food is okay, could be better, could be worse. If you want to go to school for architecture, Pratt may seem great and it can be, but it's also great to maybe consider other options, too. If the money isn't a problem then Pratt is fine for you. Most students are friendly and we're all struggling in some way.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be prepared mentally and financially.

I enjoy the mentorship like program, but wish it came with a bit more guidance. The professors are professionals in the field so they are busy outside of class. Class time isn't always used efficiently, but its a different experience than a 4-year university. I think the insane amount of money we're paying could be used to give back more to the students, but I would't transfer out of Pratt. I do really love the engaging atmosphere and the way other students encourage and help each other.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The facilities in the design studio aren't that great they need to do some renovations. Be prepared for the insane amount of work that you need to do. Most of my peers would come to class missing at least 2 deliverables so you won't be alone. There are a lot of late/sleepless nights, and you really need to self-motivate. Sometimes professors are lenient but sometimes they're not it all depends. I wasn't the best student before coming here so I really had to get my act together and sacrifice going out often. There are great accommodations through the Learning Access Center for students with learning/mental/physical disabilities. I've really gotten great use out of them as a student with ADHD and mental illnesses, without them I would've struggled a lot more. Overall I don't think about transferring from Pratt, but it has been a huge learning curve for me. If you are passionate enough about what you want to do this is the school for you, but burnout is always right around the corner. As long as you can take time away to recharge you will be fine.
