I actually have artistic talent, but from what I saw from my peers once I got there, you didn't really need that much talent, so you can be mediocre in the artistic department. The only real requirement is that you be prepared to put yourself in hellish debt for a degree with no real value. It's all about the money.

I recommend you turn around and go somewhere else if you really want to attend art school. MCA is not the place to do it.

They will more than likely give you a large scholarship. Do NOT let this trick you into going here. It is not like a normal college and although it says accredited i'm having a hard time getting a few universities to accept my grades. GO WITH CAUTION.

It was a simple, in-person portfolio reviewJun 04 2013Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
It was a simple, in-person portfolio review. Have some semblance of ability to draw and they'll likely take you in and throw some scholarship your way. They give out scholarships to pretty much everyone -- that's how they get you in.

I submitted a portfolio, moved 1500 miles and started a new life.

If you want to go here, do your research and make sure there aren't any other schools you'd be a better fit in. VISIT THE CAMPUS! I never visited first and I didn't regret it because on the tour I honestly don't think they show you the real problems nor do I think people know what to look for.
