Parsons Summer Intensive Studies
So. I just got accepted on scholorship to the parsons summer intensive studies for design and management (like 3000K, but i still had to pay like 3000 for housing.... *sigh* anyhoo!) has anyone heard about these programs? are they any good? worth it? potentially my make or break for getting in? (which is why i'm hoping i do make a good impression!)

Thanks loves!


Michael

yeah it definitely focuses on management and writing.

i know at the end of the session you have to design a product and apply a plan to it and everything. very business-oriented/marketing i would think. not so much "fashion" oriented.

i don't think she liked it because she was more into advertising/journalism. but the teachers def. tried to make the course beneficial for her interests.

i did the college level/adult summer intensive in graphic design and i found it to be very worthwhile...
i had an aunt that lived in the city that i could stay with, so i didn't have to pay the extra $3k for housing, but i think living with other students is beneficial for collaborating and just having support...
it is pretty intense...
you're in class all day and completing assignments at night (sometimes through the night), but definitely fun and worthwhile if you want an edge before applying to college or to supplement the classes at your college...

I went last year.
I do not know which house you are staying in, but bring extra money for a standing fan, most houses do not have airconditioning.
