supper easy to get in but hard to stay in. Majority of my friends from my foundation year got kicked out or dropped out.

I was a transfer student, I spent two years at a junior college getting through most of my GE's. I really would suggest getting your GE's out of the way, it saves money, and time, and then you can have the freedom to take a few other classes that you'd like to instead of doing science, math, and English.

Talk to people who's in charge with your portfolio. Make appointments and go bother them everyday about your work. (What's wrong, what should you do to improve your work.) I didn't know a single people at OTIS but by doing this, I received $10,000 scholarship for 4years.

You need to be good at art. Drawing in particular. That's it. Don't worry if some aspects are lacking.

I think my time spent at Otis would reguarded as one of the most difficult times of my life. Its demanding, challenging, life altering and exhausting. I cried, I had all nighters often and then a full day of work and classes to follow, it was nonestop homework, and nonstop learning, and expensive.

And it was absolutely worth it.
The amount of knowledge gained was amazing it's the Harvard of art schools and you better be ready to get your ass wooped! because it will push you to the edge and ask for more. If your not ready for this maybe you should go to community college, because if your not ready Otis will chew you up and spit you back out. If you are ready, if your commited, if you believe in great art and great design and more importantly want to be a great artist and designer this is where you want to go. This school will not just teach you about design but what it takes to succeed at design in the real world.

Remember, great things require great effort. Otis is where you can learn to be great.

Talk to Teachers. Sit in classes because some teachers are nice and some are not... that is the same in every school dont let one teacher make or break your descision. Talk to faculty in General. They can be your friends or your enemies its how you present yourself and your goals. Start early with the application. Get it in early. I took a tour of the school before i applied to get a gerneral feel while class was takign place so i could see how the students work day to day. This place is not for everyone... you need to willing to work.
