ONCE YOUR IN PARSONS YOUR ALWAY IN PARSONS
This is answered in the FAQ
you get out of parsons what you put into it. If you work very hard and take your work seriously then yes it is. But if you just breeze threw and don’t give a shit about your work then no. I think parsons is worth the money because I put the effort in and spend most of my time on my work. Its an amazing place but I know too many people that are wasting their time there.
out of 4.0?
I’m not going to say yes or no but I know that part of the admissions requirements is having at least a 2.0 gpa (out of 4.0).
…i actually hate dance clubs because they trigger my anxiety but when I do go i only go to queer dance clubs….
but i like WestGay (WestWay on Tuesday nights) and Hot Rabbit (Monster on Friday nights)
these are all 21+
I don’t know. I think some places will hire students like little to no experience but it really depends on the place. Most students in college work in retail or at coffee shops or restaurants. The best way to find a job is the print TONS of resumes and just hand them out. Look on craigslist. Also sometimes design firms, interior design firms, interior fabric companies, etc are looking for secretary or administrative positions and you can apply for those. I work in an administrative position and enjoy it most of the time. It’s kinda boring but you get paid to go basic tasks like fill things, keep a showroom looking nice, answering photos, signing for packages, etc.
Ummmm… I’m not too familiar with clubs and such on campus. Like there is the Feminist Collective and Queer Collective. I’m sure there are others. Honestly, most of my friends are all from photo because I love the people in the department. And my friends who are not from photo, I met on Tumblr.
no i have not.
I have heard mixed things about her. Some people say that is okay but then I do know quite a few people who have had horrible experiences with her.
I believe for parsons your gpa needs to be at least a 2.5 (out of 4.0). I am not sure about the SAT scores.
I have said this before - If you have questions about admissions requirments, Please contact The New School directly.
because I find them uninteresting? and boring? and I’ve seen his work done a million times and there is nothing “different” or “unique” about it? I don’t need to explain why I don’t like his work.
and I don’t understand why you are comparing my work to his since both bodies have NOTHING in common. He works with his friends and models to create photos for advertising purposes or that are good to look at. While my work is self portraits that are either about gender or my own personal life. Our work isn’t comparable. I never said that my work was more interesting then his was, I never actually mentioned my work in reference to his. I am a bit insulted that you brought my own work into this conversation and I am finding it disrespectful.
I am entitled to my own opinion about other artists. If you like Ryan McGinley then that is fine. Respect that I do not like his work. In the future when an artist is sharing their opinion about another artist’s work, NEVER bring up that artist’s work. Especially when the work is of a COMPLETELY different nature.
Parsons is very competitive. I don’t know if it is “hard” to get in but it is very competitive.
Honestly, I don’t know what parsons is looking for when it comes to admissions. Probably something different.

Any tips for creating a portfolio?
Try to create some that is different. Look at things in a different way. Create something that is a bit shocking. Art Schools look at both potential as well as how you think creatively.
I always suggest taking a look at the Cooper Union home test (even if you don’t plan on applying to Cooper Union). The questions they give really force to you to think outside of the box. Same goes for the Parsons Challenge. Try to solve the questions posed in an interesting way.
if you are really super stuck then just create something. If you like drawing, draw something every day and start a sketchbook. If you like photography, carry your camera around everywhere and take photos constantly. Just start creating something. Have your friends or siblings (if you have them) model for you, either draw them or photograph them. Go draw or photograph your house in an interesting way. Go explore your neighborhood.
Whatever you end up including, make sure its work that you like.
