Freshman year was rough but those of us who stuck through got a lot out of it. I think a lot of the complaints are just people doing their best and voicing concern instead of skipping out on their education. Sophomore year feels more like I'm starting my career. I'm curious to see how the rest my years here go.

Pratt is very challenging and demanding but ultimately you get out of it what you put into it

I would choose this school again because it is challenging nd it is a lot of work but when you look back at stuff you made at the beginning of the year to stuff you made for your last final, it's amazing the progress and growth you see.
