Had a decent portfolio, they basically let anyone in if you have some sort of artistic talent. but if you are not AWESOME at what you do, they are basically accepting you for your money... and thats the sad truth :/

Don't just submit typical high school art projects orSep 02 2012Art & Design Department
Don't just submit typical high school art projects or those drawn perfectly to resemble a photo. Try to do some observation and figure drawing as well and turn in your application early. Go out and experiment and come back happy and confident in your work you will submit in your portfolio. Always have fun with your work, always. If you are a bit unsure take a pre-college class MIAD offers. It's extremely helpful. If it's a bit pricey they also offer scholarships for those who need it for pre-college.
ACT: 21 Female
Portfolio: Have a portfolio that shows creative potentialSep 02 2012Undecided
Portfolio: Have a portfolio that shows creative potential. Be sure to submit lots of drawings. MIAD really like to see drawings, especially self-portraits.

Grades: When it comes to art school grades are not taken into account when it comes to acceptance?in less you have a 2.4 GPA.

Scholarships: MIAD are kind of selective about scholarships and they do weigh your grade point avg to receive a scholarship, which I didn't know. Again I don?t know how selective they are for sure, but I have talk to a kid who got the highest scholarship you can receive = and they had belw a 3.0 GPA( I dont know if they person was being honest). But do expect to get a Scholarship of like 5-8k a year.

Acceptance Rate: I done my research on MIAD acceptance rate for last year fall 2011 admitted student face a 61% acceptance rate. As for fall 2012 admitted students-- I think it has decline tremendously, yet there has not been a officially post of it yet!

MIAD will soon be a more national know private art school. Which mean more applications and a much lower acceptance? I know they have made some big changes in the administration and curriculum for the good. As for the Fall 2013 applicant, if you are considering applying for MIAD submit your strongest work and actually visit the school. Enroll in MIAD Pre-College program to help you get a leg up and potentially a better scholarship.
ACT: 16 Male
