    Hurray for LSAD....I frequented the place back in the late 90s. A cool vibe gotta say, a lotta crazy cats with pretty mad outlooks on life. Right up my alley. A far cry from LIT, where I studied later....which seems to be brimful of Paris Hilton wannabes and Boyband lookalikes in GAA shirts. The contrast is alarming.

    I'm trying to make up my mind between LSAD and Crawford! Did the Leaving this year and I'm doing a Level5 art course to get a port folio in order(I couldnt study for the LC and do a port folio too :(). At the moment I'm thinkin of doing fine art, but the idea of digital art and graphic design is creeping into mind!

    I dunno where to go. I keep thinking Limerick though. UGH!! Hurray for art anyway :)

    As far as I'm aware, Crawford is completely fine art orientated whereas
    LSAD does both fine art and design.

    You do all six disciplines in your core year in LSAD so you get to sample
    everything. If you find you prefer design to fine art, you can opt for that in
    second year.

    This luxury is not afforded in Crawford!

    Besides, I went up to Crawford for my interview and felt a really bad
    atmosphere around the place and the people interviewing came
    across as very pretentious. Didn't like it one bit.

    That's my two cents if it means anything. Hope you make the right decision!

    Thats actually the one thing I dont like about LSAD :pac:

    I've been doing a PLC for the past 2 years which covered all the same areas. Not looking forward to having to basically repeat all this again in LSADs core year! haha

    Thanks guys!

    I've been to the LSAD open day last year, and this is not something to be offended at- but I LOVED how messy it was!:o It looked like every corner of the college was occupied by art whether it was someone making a print or just a paint splatter on the wall. I love that. However, I've never been inside Crawford, so I have no idea what to make of the actual building and atmosphere yet. I didn't like the idea that when I went onto Crawford's website it only seemed to have degrees for fine art and ceramics.

    Don't get me wrong, I love fine art but partially the reason why I'm doing a level5 course first is to experiment with other forms of art such as photography etc. I like the idea of the core year too because I think you can never experiment too much. The thing is, I live miles away from Limerick, and with accommodation in mind, how expensive would one year be?

    I'm the same, the only place I've been told about or found online is 'Grove Island' - http://www.groveisland.com/


    Just on a side note, has anyone else noticed how many 'Nemo' inspired names there are on boards?! My nickname's already Nemo so thats where mine comes from :pac:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 35 ✭✭✭ I Found Nemo


    Haha I picked the name at random while watching my favourite Pixar movie!:)

    Yeah I've been told about Grove Island too, it seems very conveniant geographically anyway. I really need to save save save :eek:


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,660 ✭✭✭ Randomfriend


    grove island is basically party central :D

    its something like 85 quid a week and 60 a week for a double room

    jody is awesome :)

    Actually thats what I'm wondering about too. See, I know Cork alot more than I know Limerick, I know there's good nightlife in Cork.

    Not that its a legitimate reason for choosing a college, but what's the nightlife like in Limerick? In paticular, what are the sessions like with the LSAD crowd if any? :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,660 ✭✭✭ Randomfriend


    in a word,... awesome :D

    I went to LSAD for five years (Fine Art Degree, followed by H.Dip) and I loved every minute of it! AN excellent college and now that its gotten a face lift, there are even better facilities. In fact, Im heading back in September to start my Masters - can't wait! Make the most of your time there if you find yourself there - experiment, create and make the most of all facilities!


  • Registered Users Posts: 164 ✭✭ Melena


    i got 530 in portfolio and got 440 in leaving!
    so i should be sound!

    just want to click ''accept'' on the CAO so everything is final! :)
    Can't wait to be all Arty for next 4-5 years! :) and meet lots of new nice peoples! Too optimistic? :D Probably :L
