Soooo... Goodnews! Other than being on Spring Break, I also visited Pratt Institute in New York. Annnddd through a series of events, it led to my decision of actually choosing the school.
I mean, I'm still not exactly in the mindset that this is my "dream" or "perfect" school, (still loving SAIC more) BUT, I know that Pratt will be good for me. (They even have indoor tennis courts! LE GASP!)
Hello New York, I am coming to you soonnnnnnn! * O*
I got accepted into Pratt Institute! Whoo! Alright. And I think I received an $18,000 annual merit scholarship? Yeahhh. So sweet manggg * u*
And I visited SAIC Monday and it was wonderfullll! But oh so expensive... ; Q;
College decisions are still be discussed because my family simply can't afford it and I've been frustrated thinking about it because I'm worried that I don't have enough confidence in my art to pay back debts or get a job. > 3>;;;;;;;;
This month is going to be fun calculating my budget and costsssssss! : D
And I got two pieces in my local art show. So that's kind of fun... but not really because they only chose the pieces that were sort of realistic, i.e. my self portraits and the girl with the red hair. I was disappointed = 3=
So I just received a letter from SAIC saying that I received a $33,000 Recognition Scholarship. Yayyayayyy! I mean, It's a nice scholarship but my hopes of going there is low because I simply can't afford the tuition even with the scholarship... *sigggggh*
I guess the whole thing is that I'm getting accepted into almost all the colleges that I applied to but it's the fact that I basically can't afford any of it that sucks.
I am scared. And I hope my financial aid pulls through and I get to go to my desired school!
So I have returned from China for about 2 weeks now after about being left there for another week because I lost my passport lol.
But I also came back to some awesome news which consists of me getting accepted into both CCS and SAIC. And also getting all 4 of my pieces and my portfolio into the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition!
