I made six or so paintings that I really liked. I submitted them and got in. I am not sure what they are looking for but I tired to show as best I could that I know how to draw to some extent, that I could also paint, and that I understood the materials I used.

I had a good portfolio, which got me in. Art Center doesn't care about high school grades; they care about your portfolio. Art Center very rarely allows for transfer credit from other universities, but they do accept transfer credits from community colleges such as Pasadena Community College. When getting into Art Center, don't rely on them giving you scholarships; they don't have a large endowment and give very miniscule scholarships.

Have a well-rounded portfolio that shows dedication. I heard one of the department chairs talk about not even knowing life drawings were required in the portfolio, though, so it's difficult to understand what they want.

Don't bother with Art Center At Night. Most of the classes don't transfer credit to the day program anyways. Instead, take classes at Pasadena City College. They have some of the same teachers for similar classes at a much more reasonable cost.
