I had to get 2 recommendations because my portfolioMay 04 2009Other
I had to get 2 recommendations because my portfolio was very good and the teachers who gave me the recommendation we very good teachers (one was a graduate alumna from SCAD). Most of my credits transferred, so I was a junior when I finished my first quarter here. I will be graduating in 2 years because of that (saving $80,000). I recommend people take there general classes at home or at the community college here in Savannah, why pay $3,000 for an English class?not worth it! Back home, I paid $200 for English. That is my biggest advice.

It was a bit easyMay 04 2009Industrial Design
It was a bit easy. When I applied, a portfolio wasn't required, but I submitted one anyway. (It helped with getting a scholarship)

I feel that they are not as selective with their students and that reflects a bit on the student population and their motivation.

Just apply, honestly SCAD will give you a chanceApr 30 2009Unknown
Just apply, honestly SCAD will give you a chance and it's once you get here that the hard work starts and that's why everyone takes foundations first because it shows who really deserves and wants to be here. Those who are just here to be here drop out fairly quickly.

I went to a SCAD Day during my seniorFeb 19 2009Industrial Design
I went to a SCAD Day during my senior year and toured the campus, ect. And at the end hey said that if we applied that day, they would waive the application fee. It only took a few minutes anyway, so I did. Then I just sent in my test scores, 3 letters of recommendation from my high school teachers and a portfolio for scholarship purposes. In about 3 weeks after I sent in the last required paperwork I got an acceptance letter and about 3 months later I got a letter congratulating me for qualifying for a scholarship. Very easy.
