Shape your portfolio around the behavior of the faculty. Faculty members are very focused on a out-of-style design form that you must be polite of.

Strange admissions process. Here are the numbers last I heard:
20 % admitted to fine arts
30% to graphic design
20% to film/video
28% to photography
18% to character animation

Students aren't admitted based on grades or ACT scores, it's only based on the portfolio. So, there are lots of people who flunked math in high school and can't put a sentence together but are really good artists. The liberal arts teachers tend to get frustrated about that, but it's an arts specialty school so I'm not sure what else they were expecting.

True, you have to know where you are headed in life, have talent, and be willing to work hard. Plus, it is hard to get accepted. You have prove you already have extreme talent. Lots of students got turned down two or three times. Keep working on your portfolio and try again! Get a vision of where you are headed.
