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 largeMay 05 2014Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
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.

Getting in is pretty simpleFeb 22 2011Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Getting in is pretty simple. Just don't submit anime/manga of any way, shape or form, and no vacation photos for you photo students. A good mentality to keep is to draw at least some from life, and do some mixed media work as well (painting, pottery, pastels, etc).
ACT: 20 Female
