daaaang, soundcloud ! cutting my minutes - not cool. either way, hit me up with an email and i can send it directly ! otherwise, i guess i don’t have the space to upload it online anymore.. mega lame, sorry dude :¬(
It’s such an interesting topic, because it really just depends on who you are… I, personally, just can’t stand authority ! I’ve never been treated like a child in my life so I’m not used to it. I don’t like this environment because I am not treated as an adult, or just as an equal person. I’m also a perfectionist when it comes to design - if things aren’t managed right then I just can’t let them go. I get way too fussy about things and have a very strong sense of justice. It gets in my way more than it does other people who attend.
I think Interlochen just lacks common decency and professionalism sometimes.. But it’s just the little things that will get to you. I don’t think any of my bad experiences are enough to say I wish I’d never attended. The benefits of this place outweigh the negative aspects absolutely. It was 150% worth it and I am ten million times the person I was before. I would not be where I am and I would be shit. My future would be lame if I had not come here.
10 times out of 10 I will still encourage anyone to come here and experience what I have. It just takes strength, and you will gain that strength.
$50,000 for senior or post-grad year ! ! a small handful of people can pay the full tuition. Thank goodness for their scholarships - that’s how I’m here !
You are so welcome ! ! ! I think so too :¬) it’s a very powerful place. I think if he can really come to find strength in his sensitivity as I have here, he’ll be ok.
& Hardly ! The academic classes are incredible ! If you can have him take any Wescott english class (I took Comic Traditions first semester and Mythology second semester), I’m sure he will love it. Some people have a hard time with how crazy the teacher is, but his classes change lives ! I find the academic classes I’ve taken have informed my artwork immensely. So, if anything, they’re fascinating and fun ! It’s always a gamble, of course; some teachers don’t know what they’re doing. However, the great teachers outweigh the bad definitely ! They’re challenging classes, but always worth it.
Another plus: the graduation requirements for academics are very low, since the art is so integral. If he’s coming in as a junior or senior, chances are he’s already taken care of the required credits - which means more fun classes like mythology as opposed to calc !
