Having a big bank account is all you need, reallyJun 14 2012Architecture
Having a big bank account is all you need, really. No portfolio or minimum GPA or anything, so you'll have a good share of idiots and people who drop out after the first year. But really, keep looking for schools. If you can get over all the downfalls of this school, you'll get a good experience and portfolio. But it's not for everyone.

Although the Academy boasts being a "private" school, andMay 09 2012Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Although the Academy boasts being a "private" school, and that it's students are top-tier, they actually have a 100% acceptance rate. As a high school senior who graduated from one of the best high schools in the nation, I had a portfolio, a resume, and high marks, but none of that was even considered. All admissions really cared about was that I had a functioning credit card.

As long as I had above a 3Jan 19 2012Other
As long as I had above a 3.0 in high school I got a scholarship. You don't even have to have an essay when submitting an application. Get your stuff done on time. I would highly recommend doing the Honors Tutorial if you're a bright student- then you'll get both Bachelors and Masters in 5 years.

I would suggest getting a high SAT or ACT score just to get as higher as possible academic scholarship. Otherwise it's not very competitive to get in.

If you're applying to the College of Fine Arts, do your homework, look what's required for your audition or portfolio, double check with the faculty if you're not sure about something. Absolutely meet with them, see if you like them, and whether they like you. I highly suggest live auditions for any school.

You will be accepted no matter what. That is their policy, however don't expect to graduate in 4 years or at all. High dropout rate and failure rate.
