Found this little fella in the photo department lounge.
I should’ve picked easier fabrics. This weave takin forevah. So over this #alterego #amish meets #s&m collection. #parsonsproblems
I also was accepted at both Parson and SVA. and there are differences and similarities. Both have a fine art photography base - SVA a bit more than Parsons I believe. Parsons does have a section of it’s photography department that is Fashion Photography related which I am unsure if SVA has that or not. The facilities at Parsons are better from what my understanding it - i.e. the darkroom, the printers, the studios. I can’t say much of the education at SVA seeing as I never attended but the education at Parsons is worth it, if you are wiling to put in to the work. You can absolutely scrape by at Parsons by hardly doing anything and not trying (you won’t get good grades at all but its still possible). But if you really get to know your professors and apply yourself it will pay off. The professors have amazing connections and are really interested in helping you. I interned for one of my professors last semester and it was an amazing experience. Every professor is an established artist or curator or are established in whatever field they are in. I think Parsons is worth it and I am so happy here and I know I made the right choice by coming here. Have you seen both campuses yet? I think thats the best way to know. If you tour both campuses and see what each school has then you’ll have a better idea of what school you want to go to. I knew the second i got out of the car at Parsons that this was the school I wanted to go. It’s like finding an apartment. Once you walk in, you know.
As for the other departments being rejected, that is not true at all. Yes, Parsons may be known for its Fashion Department (thanks to some super well known graduates) but the other departments are not rejected. The photography department again has the best equipment I’ve seen (and i toured all 12 colleges I applied to). The department is small which is nice because you get to know your classmates really well and form great relationships with them. I couldn’t be happier at parsons, yes there are some flaws but its worth it if you are willing to put in the work.
Honestly I have no idea. I don’t know why they are extending your application deadline. If I remember correctly, there was a date for the written/paper application but then a separate deadline for your portfolio. No idea if that is still how the application process works. Honestly call the admissions office for an answer to your question.
And I have no idea if you will get in or not. I believe parsons cares more about you portfolio then your grades and SAT scores. But I don’t work at the school so I can’t honestly say how their admissions process works.
If you go to Design school, keep all of your syllabus’s from all of your classes. I guarantee you if you look through it you will find resources and links that you never payed attention to.
My teacher just said the words “mentally handicapped”
Today at work I made a leader-bird. Very one can submit their high scores and then we put their bird up. It’s my best work to date if were being honest.
the first photo that comes up when you google my name is the exhalation of a massive bong rip during freshman year of uni
both C and V (me) have answered the questions.

When will parsons ever get elevators that work? Never.
