The funniest part about getting into this school isApr 12 2004Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
The funniest part about getting into this school is that it is more like a raffle than anything else. There are many students here whom I wonder how they managed to even graduate from highschool and there are many students who got rejected that would do much better in there place. Also, in many cases,the school will accept you knowing full well that you cannot afford the steep and ever-growing tuition; ironic eh?

If you plan to join the architecture program, beApr 12 2004Architecture
If you plan to join the architecture program, be prepared to completely change your lifestyle. My eating habits, sleeping habits, and social life have all changed (mostly for the bad) due to my major. Although my health is put in jeopardy, the sacrifices must be made to survive in this field. Be sure that you are willing to give up your social life for the most part and be up working all hours of the night if architecture is what you are pursuing. I suggest that only those absolutely sure that this major is for them apply. You must be dedicated and passionate about your work.
SAT: 1030 Female
Applied for early acceptanceApr 10 2004Business - Management and Administration
Applied for early acceptance.apply early.
SAT: 1440 Male
Get good grades and make sure you have plentyApr 10 2004Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
get good grades and make sure you have plenty of money set aside. art supplies are unbearably expensive and books are really expenisive too. Make sure you have an emergency savings account so that when financial aid messes up everything, you wont get kicked out.
