School of Art Institute of Chicago
Balancing college applications and schoolwork as an art student can be a daunting task, especially in regards to working on a portfolio which matches the requirements of a range of different programs. On choosing which colleges to apply to, The Red Pen was tremendously beneficial in helping me formulate a timeline of when I should get my SAT attempts done, start working on my Common App essay and finalise my college portfolio so I always had a clear idea of what I needed to work on and where I was headed next. My counsellor was always enthusiastic to discuss potential ideas for college essays or to clarify any doubts that I or my mother might have had. The Red Pen made the college application process much less stress-inducing and much more exciting, as it should be!
