"Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts charges close to 40,000 a year which is basically as expensive as most prestigious school in the United States. However: 1. This school changes its advertisement strategy according to whatever is fashionable(give some thoughts to that). In other words, don't trust what they tell you. 2. It markets itself to teach you a little bit of everything and that you can do anything you want and that they are all inclusive of all sort of ideas and will help you make better art etc. Beware of their rhetoric, if you go to school here, you are not going to learn anything of substance. No teacher will genuinely answer a serious question and almost always avoid your question with trickery, diversion, circular reasoning and more. You won't learn anything in depth. They want to keep you in a post-modern paradise flying with unicorns. 3. Read a book called "Talking Art: The Culture of Practice and the Practice of Culture in MFA Education". Yes, the book was about MFA but BFA at this school is basically a Watertown version of that. Read it, and use your own judgement. 4. There is a general anti-captialism, anti bankers. Not to give an opinion on those issues. You will see teachers, staffs, administration kissing asses of the same people they claim to despise. Who fund anyway right? lol. Double talk all the time. Back stabbing are common. Do go to this school if you: 1. Have a lot of money to waste. 2. Retarded and brain-dead who like to praise and be praised on the most superficial things. 3. Genuinely a degenerate. People here are trickster, chameleon, retarded deceptive, or naive who deserve to be preyed."
