I think you should let her go to Chicago because there's more good food there for you when you visit.  (Maybe half joking)

the thing is, we have this gorgeous loft Air BnB in Providence.. And it's so close to a couple of breweries we like.. But, I have an office in Chicago so, I would get to visit her...

So Chicago is out.. We didn't like the school at all.  I mean, it's beautiful and the technology is great and the museum it's attached to is ridiculous but, it is way too focused on academics of art.. We feel like it's raising art critics and art teachers.. The numbers were pretty wild.. They accept something like 80 percent of applicants and 70 percent of freshman class does not return.. And something like 60 percent of graduates go on to teach there.. They were talking about how, sometimes an art piece can be unsuccessful but, the intention is more important, or something like that..  Even the film center was named after a Roger Ebert who is a film critic.. Not a film maker.. ,Maybe he gave a shit load of money but, yeh, this place is not making artists, it's making critics.  

 

It's one of those academic sort of places.. It's not really focused, it allows you to like float around and dabble in all sorts of things..  Miss K she is going to be making the art they are going to be talking about in their lecture halls!  :P
